This is a route that begins and ends in England, but visits, and takes in, much of Wales. A spectacular start along the ridge of the Cat’s Back eventually leads to Wales. Impressive views from Hay Bluff over the Wye Valley now prevail. A return over Offa’s Dyke at it’s highest altitude and a final descent to the Olchon Valley.
