This linear trail climbs the wild North Berwyn Mountains to the south of the River Dee. To walk the full 13 miles, start at either Corwen or Llangollen. Both towns are on the main A5 (London-Holyhead) road.

The route is waymarked, and split into five sections that start and finish at easily accessible points. This is a challenging route, for experienced walkers, and it’s essential to be properly equipped with walking boots, waterproof clothing and the large scale 1:25,000 OS Explorer map (orange cover) “255 Llangollen and the Berwyns”, on which the route can be followed in greater detail.
