Family walking in Nash Wood Radnor Forest.

Details

Welcome to the wood which lays half in Wales and half in England, true 'border country'. There is one walk that starts from this car park:

Nash Trail (2 miles, 3.3 kilometres)
This circular trail from Nash Wood car park goes through a mix of woodlands. Halfway round, the viewpoint of Burfa Vista overlooks Radnor Forest and Hergest Ridge as well as some of the hillforts which are a common feature of this border country between Wales and England.

This trail makes a lovely walk no matter what time of year, but keep an eye out for colourful fungi in the autumn.

Directions:

Nash Wood car park is off the B4355, near Presteigne.
Follow the B4355 From Knighton to Kington. At the T junction just before Presteigne, turn left onto the by-pass. Opposite the secondary school, turn right and the car park is down this road on your right.

Public Transport:

The nearest train station is Knighton.

The OS grid ref is SO 314 635

The wooded areas of Radnor Forest are managed by Natural Resources Wales and offer waymarked walks from three car parks (Warren Wood, Fishpools and Nash Wood) as well as numerous public rights of way. Please note: Sometimes we need to close or divert trails for your safety whilst we undertake maintenance work or forest operations. Occasionally we may have to close a site in extreme weather, such as high winds or snow and ice due to the risk of injury to visitors or staff. Please always follow any instructions onsite and make sure you follow any temporary diversion signs in place.
