Details

One of the Seven Hills of Abergavenny.

This route crosses the busy A465 behind Abergavenny railway station and continues on to the wooded slopes of the Little Skirrid. A steep path delivers you to the cleared summit for breathtaking views over Abergavenny and the surrounding hills. Forestry tracks take you down the back of the hill and you return through fields skirting the hill.

This route also forms one of the “Healthy Walks” routes in the Abergavenny area. Natural springs and other wet corners mean this route is best walked after a dry spell or when the ground is frozen.
