Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.
Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.

We start our walk from the The Golden Lion at Llangynhafal. Initial we go east across fields and a lane to the western flanks of the Clwydian Hills. We go north walking along the delightful valley before turning uphill to the east then north east until we reach Offa’s Dyke just below Moel Arthur.
Our route now follows Offa’s Dyke south, starting with a short sharp ascent. We continue along Offa’s Dyke for 3km before turning west to descend into the valley once again. We head north until we reach the lane and turn west to The Golden Lion.
