No dogs allowed

Covid-19

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.

This walk over the hills and moorland S of Corwen, is just in the Blue + category.

From Corwen centre we take a lane S which becomes a pleasant climb through Coed Pen-y-pigyn woods passing a reservoir. Still climbing we pass through Cynwyd forest SE to emerge on open moorland we continue S past Bryn-Ilus to reach Liberty Hall, the highest point on the walk. Now we descend first SE then W to rejoin the southerly section of Cynwyd Forest. On leaving the woods, the route crosses rough hill farm land to descend though Cynwyd before heading NE along the North Berwyn way, back towards Corwyn. We climb shortly and steeply on to a wooded path which brings us back to Corwen centre.
