Due to tree felling operations, part of the Usk reservoir trail will be closed from Friday 14th August. The operation is located on the far west side of the reservoir and will clear the storm damaged trees as well as the larch trees. Due to the location of the operation it will mean that a circular loop will not be able to be maintained around the reservoir. The trail will be closed between SN819 275 and SN 805 280 other sections of the trail are not affected. It is expected to take around 10 weeks to complete the work.
