A lovely short stroll of almost 5km through Wentwood Forest, a greenspace of more than 1,000 hectares of conifer and broadleaf forest.
Just north of Newport, Wentwood is popular with walkers, cyclists and horse riders. But you can always find a quiet spot.
This walk is on wide gravel tracks and woodland paths.
Start at the Cadira Beeches car park NP26 3AZ. Take the wide gravel track that was immediately in front of you as you drove into the car park. Keep following that track, don't turn off until you reach the Five Crossroads (it's a really big open area). Take the left fork in front of you (the second left) and follow that until you reach a turning on your left. Take that and follow it through the woods until you reach a t-junction. Turn right there and follow the broad gravel track to another t-junction. Turn left there and follow the wide track slighly uphill. You'll enjoy gorgeous views to the left over the woodland. When the track bends sharply to the left, take the dirt track on your right. This narrower track will lead you through the woods and eventually you'll reach a fence on your right where clearance work has taken place. At the end of the track turn left. Follow this gravel track around and when it forks take the right fork. Keep going right to the end of this broad track, enjoying views to the right over to the mountains of the Brecon Beacons. As the gravel track starts to end you'll see a dirt track on your left through the woods. Take this track and follow it straight down to Cadira Beeches car park.
