HeronMonnow Valley Walk

60 km / 37 miles

Herefs, Mons, Powys
A river route from the confluence of Monnow and Wye, to its source near Charwel Ddu on the east side of Hays Bluff close to the Offa's Dyke Path, leaving about four miles to enter Hay-on-Wye on the Offa's Dyke Path. The river flows south east from its source and then forms a section of the Wales/England border and much of the boundary of Herefordshire and Monmouthshire. It can provide a low-level alternative to Offa's Dyke Path.

The Monnow Valley Walk is regularly checked and there are no known problems either in Monmouthshire or Herefordshire. The book is out of print but copies may be available from the link below.

The River Dore flows through Golden Valley, traversed by the Herefordshire Trail, before joining the Monnow.
