Walking in Corwen, North Wales
There are plenty of walking routes to suit everyone’s ability in Corwen and the surrounding area. Try out local walks starting out from Corwen itself, explore the network of footpaths around Llyn Brenig or try your walking skills up Moel Emoel near Bala. Venture a little further and you have the whole of Snowdonia National Park to choose from.
Two walks in Corwen itself include The Old Railway Line (1 mile circular) and Caer Drewyn Walk (2 mile circular). Both start from the Leisure Centre in town.
The first of these follows a section of railway line that brought the first train to Corwen, from Ruthin, in August 1864. This walk will take you through woodland full of Wales’ finest wildlife including buzzards that can often be seen flying above.
The second route to Caer Drewyn is a moderate walk that takes about two hours. At the end of the walk you will reach the impressive stone remains of Caer Drewyn hillfort, an important archaeological site in Wales. Known locally as Mynydd-y-Gaer, the summit offers spectacular views of the surrounding area.
