Walking - North Wales Borderlands

The North Wales Borderlands offers a wealth of relatively undiscovered walks, including Dee Valley Way, North Berwyn Way and Clwydian Way.

The Dee Valley Way and The North Berwyn Way links the two towns of Corwen and Llangollen. This series of waymarked and graded routes takes in the beautiful scenery, wildlife and history of this stunning area of North East Wales. The Clwydian Way on the other hand is a Circular Long Distance Footpath and this route also takes you through some of North Wales' finest countryside.

Dee Valley Way is a moderate, 15 mile walk between Corwen and Llangollen in North Wales. The route crosses a varied landscape, rich in history and wildlife. Experience peaceful paths, quiet villages and friendly pubs. Explore ancient castles, churches and bridges.

North Berwyn Way is a 15 mile linear trail that climbs the wild North Berwyn Mountains to the south of the River Dee. From here you can enjoy the magnificent views and savour the peace and solitude.

You can begin both routes from Corwen or Llangollen, North Wales. If you only want to walk one way, you can travel the other by steam train or horse-drawn canal boat.

For a shorter walk, you can also create a circular route that combines the North Berwyn and the Dee Valley Ways using the link routes at Carrog and Glyndyfrdwy.

Clwydian Way's 122 mile route takes you through beautiful countryside and links the historic towns of Ruthin, Llangollen, Corwen, Denbigh, St. Asaph and Rhuddlan.

The classic route starts and ends in the traditional seaside resort of Prestatyn, which is well served by bus and rail connections. The route uses public rights of way and is waymarked with a distinctive white disc featuring the Buzzard.
