    Were traveling with 2 children and are migrated from the Valley on the Long Mynd. Nearly 7.5 KM. For children but definitely if you're accustomed to hikes are feasible. Picnic at the highest point. Here, I've missed benches and chairs (on the whole line). Scenic and varied. Like again...

    The Long Mynd is a beautiful hiking area with difficult and makkelijek pathways. In Carding Mill Valley you can good parking (paid and then continue walking. Get from Church Stretton, take the shuttle bus (Saturday and Sunday). By car it is narrow and steep.. Toppers are the Stiperstones and the waterfall route.
