This walk is of reasonable length, with several steep ascents and descents, requiring a good level of fitness.

This is the tenth in a series of day walks along the Offa's Dyke Path - the idea is to eventually walk from the North Wales Coast to the border with England in stages, taking in some beautiful scenery en-route.

This will be a logistically tricky event as we will be parking at the end point, organising the group then driving with half of the cars 15 minutes to the true start point.

After finishing the remaining cars will be used to return the first drivers back to their own vehicles.

From the true starting point at Llandegla, we will immediately pick up the Offa's Dyke Path and follow it almost all of the day. We will ascend the western side of Ruabon Mountain through Llandegla Forest (dodging the occasional mountain biker!) heading to World's End.

After a spot of lunch by the ford the Path narrows along the side of Creigiau Eglwyseg, offering dramatic views of Maesyrychen Mountain and the upper Vale of Llangollen.

We will finally leave the Path (until the next Part) to climb up the steep slopes of Castell Dinas Bran, a ruined 13th Century castle with some truly stunning views down into the town of Llangollen and the lower Vale.

Descending down to the town we can have an optional tea at the Llangollen Wharf along the canal or pint at The Corn Mill before collecting the previously parked cars and dropping off the first drivers to their cars at Llandegla.

This walk is roughly 16 km/10 miles, with several steep ascents and descents, crossing a wide mix of terrain. Expect sections of muddy, rocky and uneven footing.

Well-behaved OutdoorDogs are very welcome. Note: Leads will be required in areas with livestock, and we will be crossing stiles frequently.
