The Fit4Life Walking Groups have developed a series of Monmouthshire Health Walking Routes: Short easy access routes: 'Many of the routes use level paths with gates rather than stiles. Some are more challenging, with slopes, steps, rough or muddy ground or stiles. Information is given on the route card for each walk so you can decide whether it will suit you'.
