Nash Wood is managed by Natural Resources Wales. For more information (including visitor facilities, trail lengths and grades, any changes or temporary closures, and car parking charges) please go to the Natural Resources Wales website.

Just outside the historic town of Presteigne, Nash Wood lies half in Wales and half in England, making it true ‘border country’.
It is in the area known as Radnor Forest which was once a royal hunting ground.

The circular walking trail climbs through the woodland to a viewpoint overlooking Burfa Bank, one of the many hillforts along this part of the border.

The woodland habitat is ideal to see buzzards and goshawk or you may see siskins and crossbills which thrive on the large cones produced by the noble and Douglas fir trees.

You may also see one of the many roe deer that live here and, if you visit in autumn, keep an eye out for colourful fungi.


The Nash Trail is a moderate-grade walking trail with a steep climb at the start.
This circular trail makes its way through the woodland to the viewpoint where there is a bench.

The viewpoint overlooks the Iron Age hillfort of Burfa Bank, and there are views over the Radnor valley and to Herefordshire.
The trail is waymarked from start to finish.

Please read the information panel at the start of the trail before setting off.
