Walks around Monmouth

Monmouth Rambling & Hillwalking Club first started as a walking group in 1981. Since then our members have enjoyed walking countless miles in and around the Monmouth area. We are lucky to have some of the UK’s most beautiful and accessible countryside on our doorstep.

From the town centre you can walk along the Wye Valley, climb the Kymin or visit beautiful woodlands.
