This walk takes-in some of most important and sensitive up-land, moorland wilderness in North Wales offering wide reaching views of the Llantysilio and Berwyn Mountains, River Dee Valley, Clwydian Range and Snowdonia.
Our trek takes us 15 miles to Corwen and the newly opened Railway Station to catch the 16.30 Steam Train.
You'll have a nostalgic steam train ride so, sit-back and watch the beautiful Dee Valley and river go by, we aim to be back in Llangollen at 5.30.

WEATHER: keep an eye on the weather in the days leading-up to the walk, a waterproof jacket and trousers may be needed.
