The Kerry Ridgeway is an ancient trackway with a long tradition as a trade and drovers’ route from Wales to markets in England.
The route never dips below 1000 feet (300 metres) above sea level, resulting in remarkable views to Wales on one side and England on the other.
Walkers, horse riders and cyclists may follow this route.
