Walking

Walking

Walking has to be one of the best ways of relaxing in the great outdoors whilst seeing some spectacular scenery along the way. Walkers of all abilities are catered for in Hiraethog with numerous way-marked trails of all lengths and levels available – and plenty of breath taking scenery to boot.

The Hiraethog Way links the villages of Pentrefoelas, Cerrigydrudion, Llanfihangel Glyn Myfr and Llanrhaeadr via public footpaths, quiet lanes and country roads – a wonderful way to explore this beautiful and largely untouched area.

Shorter routes such as the Alwen Trail, which includes six interpretation panels explaining the local history, culture and folklore of the Alwen Reservoir and the range of trails of various lengths at nearby Llyn Brenig are also perfect for family walking providing something new and different at each time of the year. The Around the Lake Trail at Llyn Brenig at 9.5 miles is longer but guides you through some of the best countryside surrounding the lake. Use the Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre as a convenient point to start your walk and to finish with a well earned cuppa in the cafe.

There are several long distance walking routes which run through the Mynydd Hiraethog. The Clwydian Way follows a 122 mile circular route from Prestatyn; the Cistercian Way links together many of the Cistercian Abbeys across Wales; and the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way passes through the villages of Llansannan and Gwytherin on route from Basingwerk Abbey on the English border to Bardsley Island on the west coast of Wales.
