Overview

From Whitestone Car Park this walk follows ancient pathways on forest tracks and woodland paths, steep in places, on the western side of the Wye with outstanding views over the valley below. It passes the top of Cleddon Falls and on to Manor Woods, before returning by way of Beacon Hill.

There is approx. 1 mile on quiet roads, one stream to ford and several muddy patches, but no stiles.
