The spectacular coastal scenery of Pembroke's national park is only one of the county's many facets explored in this collection of varied and interesting circular walks.

The routes take you through the Preseli Hills (from which ancient man took the 'bluestones' for Stonehenge), the Daugleddau's hidden tidal reaches (once busy with coal barges), deep wooded gorges (whose fast-flowing streams powered long-forgotten mills), prehistoric hill forts, medieval castles, isolated churches and many intriguing places that await discovery.

With routes ranging between 2 and 12 miles (20km), there is something for everyone, often incorporating places to visit or a welcoming pub or cafe en route. Nowhere is the walking overly demanding, but be aware that, particularly along some sections of the coast, paths can make successive steep climbs and descents.

Thanks to Nick Heath for the following information

Walk 35 Rhydwilym -  p.174 last line: "go right" - this is no longer (March 2016) possible as the footpath down the riverbank is now closed: caution advised on P.175 was well advised: PCC PROWL Team emailed: "CA1/7 was usable until around 2010 when the path that runs along the very steep river bank eroded away and fell into the river. The land is made up of unstable shale/slate material and the repair is likely to be delayed. The not terribly pleasant alternative is to turn left up the track through Llwyn-yr-ebol farm to the B road, turn right and go for about a kilometre, turn right again down the Landsker Borderlands Trail and rejoin the route at the fork mentioned on page 175.
