Short but steep climb at the start. Small incline/declines the rest of the way.

A rewarding 13km walk offering views of the Llangollen valley.

We will start our journey from the beautiful Llangollen Heritage Railway Station and begin making our way out of the town towards Castell Dinas Bran, a ruined castle which is steeped in history going back to 600BCE. The castle sits on top of a short and steep hill but its worth climb for the views. 

We'll then ascend slightly up to Eglwyseg mountain (not as scary as it sounds) to walk alongside the Offa's Dyke Trail where we will be welcomed by amazing views of Llangollen and the surround area. Later we will descend and cut across farmland to pick up a path which takes us to the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey, once home to Cistercian Monks. 

From there, we'll follow the Llangollen Canal up to Horseshoe Falls before doubling back to Berwyn Railway Station to catch the train back to Llangollen Station.

Dogs are welcome along on the walk and are permitted to ride on the train but will require a small fee payable at the train station on the day.

We will be leaving Llangollen station at 10:30am in order to make it in time for the train back so please arrive on time!

Be aware that you will need to book your own train ticket on the day.
