The Wye Valley in Wales is beautiful and well-known. The Wye Valley Walk offers the hiker the opportunity to explore the course of the River Wye. The path starts at Chepstow, the mouth of the River Wye. Walking upstream along limestone cliffs, one reaches the ruins of Tintern Abbey.
The path continues to the town of Monmouth, Ross-on-Wye, and of course the famous bookshop town of Hay-on-Wye, where the trail meets Offa's Dyke Path. The path continuous upstream to the town of Rhayader, and has been extended in recent years into the mountains of Wales to reach Plynlimon.
The green wooded valley landscape is attractive and there are many things to see. The path is easier than trails through the high hills of Wales, like Glyndwr's Way and the Coed Morgannwg Way. But still, one must be prepared for the fair amount of mud and rain.
