This is a circular walk in a beautiful Welsh valley


22 October 2023

No dogs allowed

We start in the charming village of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog, beside its 2 former droving inns, now popular rural pubs. After a short steep climb NE of the village, we head NW through firstly forest then fields along the Ceiriog valley. At Swch-cae-rhiw a steady climb takes us onto open moorland East of Pen-plaenau. After crossing the Ceiriog at a small bridge, the track heads E along the edge of woodland before turning SE over Bryn Du and then back to the village via the original lane.

Tracks through forest and over pasture, open moorland and short sections on lanes. Some sections can be boggy after rain.
