Herefordshire Walking is a small social enterprise whose committee and members are enthusiastic walkers and local businesses working through the 2016 Walking Festival towards bringing the joy of walking in Herefordshire to as many as possible.
The first Herefordshire Walking Festival was organised in 2002 to signal that the county was open for walking again after the foot and mouth epidemic in 2001 brought tourism in such a rural county to a halt. Since then, walking has become a pivotal factor for attracting visitors to the county and Herefordshire has responded with the Walkers Are Welcome Towns of Ross-on-Wye, Kington, Leominster and Bromyard and their Walking Festivals and events.
There's plenty of it to do: circle the county from market town to market town on the Herefordshire Trail or follow the established routes of The Wye Valley Walk, Mortimer Trail, Monnow Valley Walk and the Offa's Dyke Path. Have a look at Even More Walkingfor year round opportunities.
