Please make sure that you are fit enough to undertake the walk you intend to join. If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first: it’s much better to find a walk a little too slow and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted. Most Ramblers’ walks are off-road in rural areas. Please have suitable footwear and clothing for the walk you intend to join, and bring some food and drink, even if the walk includes a pub or café break. Leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit. When in doubt, contact the organisers or the walk leader in advance. For your own and others’ safety please read and abide by any advice and guidelines issued by the organisers, and the instructions of the walk leader. Though walking is inherently one of the safest outdoor activities, no activity is completely without risk and it is your responsibility to behave sensibly and to minimize the potential for accidents.

An abbey, a chapel and two ridges
Meet: Llanthony car park
The classic exhilarating circuit north of Llanthony. We begin by ascending to the Offa's Dyke path over Loxidge tump and then head northwest on the ridge, eventually descending to Capel y Ffin. We then ascend steeply for a while followed by a more gently climb to Bal Mawr, before heading back to Llanthony.
Two steep climbs and descents - at your own pace. Total ascent 3000'.
Bring a picnic lunch. With luck we'll get tea at Llanthony!
