Ceiriog Valley Walk Details
The Ceiriog Valley Walks is a waymarked trail from Chirk on the English border deep into the Berwyn Hills of North Wales. The Ceiriog Valley Walk was devised by the Chirk and Ceiriog Valley Partnership in order to connect all the villages in the valley. It’s also devised around public transport, so even if it a linear walk you can easily return to your starting point. Of course, you could always stay at Llanarmon DC in one of the hotels and walk back the next day. The Hand, despite the remote location is quite luxurious and has a high quality menu available.
The route starts from Chirk, following good tracks and bridlways, including the Maelor Way and the confusingly similarly named Ceiriog Trail which is a bridleway promoted for equestrian and mountain biking. Crossing the Offa’s Dyke National Trail before heading off through the villages of Pontfadog, Glyn Ceiriog and eventually to Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog.
