The Kymin

2 miles (3 km)

Climb to the 245m (800ft) summit of Kymin Hill and enjoy wonderful views down the Wye Valley, up into the Brecon Beacons and across to the Malvern Hills. The National Trust owned site also has nice woodland trails and the Grade II listed Round House built in the late 18th century. There is also a Naval Temple built in 1800 to commemorate the second anniversary of the British naval victory at theBattle of the Nilein 1798. In the early 19th century Vice AdmiralHoratio Nelson visited the Naval Temple and the Roundhouse on Kymin Hill, where he enjoyed the magnificent views.
The Kymin Dash takes place on the hill every year. The course covers about 7 miles, circling the town and both ascending and descending the Kymin by forest tracks, field paths and minor roads.
It's easy to extend your walk in this lovely area. You can pick up the Wye Valley Walk and head along the river to the nearby Symonds Yat Rock where you can enjoy more great views and a number of waymarked walking trails.
