Symonds Yat Trail

Symonds Yat Trail

This circular walking trail follows paths through the Iron Age fort and into attractive woodland.

Starting from the main car park, walk up towards the viewpoint and pass banks and ditches next to the path which are the remains of the ramparts of an Iron Age hillfort built around 2500 years ago.  The ramparts defended the southern side of the fort, the other two sides were protected by the steep cliffs of the Wye Gorge.

The trail is 2km (1.2 miles) long and is undulating, with one small steep downhill towards the end, and a slight incline back to the car park. The route uses a mixture of wide surfaced stone tracks and narrower unsurfaced paths. 

This trail is now also home to our wellbeing trail.
