Attraction Information

The Herefordshire Trail is great for families into orienteering and map reading as well as the hiker types, being basically is a long distance path to give a circular tour around the whole county! It links the five market towns of Leominster, Bromyard, Ledbury, Ross-on-Wye and Kington along with some of the picturesque villages and hamlets for which the region is well known, so plan to set out early and wear the good boots!.

The whopping 150 mile route wends through spectacular countryside with smashing views great for family photos. Your little explorers can have a mini beast safari through apple orchards, hopfields, woodland loaded with wild flowers and lush river valleys where butterflies and dragonflies usually abound. Such variable terrain gives great scope for joining the trail midway depending on the environment you're after, though this can take some planning to match with the regional car parks.

If you're not taking a picnic then you're bound to stumble across somewhere you fancy eventually following the trail: it leads through many adorable little villages with country pubs and other refreshment options.
