Guidebook to 25 walks in the Forest of Dean, between the Severn and Wye, from 4-mile routes to all-day sections of long-distance trails such as the Offa's Dyke Path and Gloucestershire Way, this guide is ideal for exploring the forest and its history and includes the information needed for walkers of all abilities to explore this ancient area.
Seasonswalks can be enjoyed in every season, with the central forest providing shelter on windy days.
Accessible from Gloucester, Lydney and Chepstow, while the key centres within the Forest of Dean itself are Coleford and Cinderford.
None of the routes should present any technical difficulties, although all of them require basic route-finding skills and the walks following part of long-distance trails are challenging full-day expeditions; many follow clear forest tracks and paths across farmland.
Iconic hills (such as May Hill), forested slopes, coal and iron-making sites with furnaces and ponds, sensational views, picturesque landscapes and a rich cultural and social history.
