More Information

First choose your starting point: either Corwen or Llangollen. Although the guide sets out from Corwen, the Dee Valley Way can be walked in either direction. To follow the route from Llangollen to Corwen, simply work through the sections in reverse order. For a shorter walk, select a section or two to suit your needs – or travel to or from your walk by steam train or horse-drawn canal boat.

The whole 21km / 13mile route is clearly waymarked, and split into five sections that start and finish at easily accessible points. It’s a good idea, to take along a large scale OS Explorer map (orange cover): either 255 Llangollen and the Berwyns, or 256 Llangollen and Wrexham, which show the route in greater detail – as well as revealing other places to visit along the way.

Made up of five sections, this clearly waymarked trail crosses a varied landscape rich in history and wildlife. Experience peaceful paths, quiet villages and friendly pubs. Explore ancient castles, churches and bridges. Enjoy a wealth of wildflowers, birds and butterflies.

Maps: OS Explorer 255 or 256

Distance: 21 km/13 miles (full trail)

Duration: Allow 1 day (full trail)

Difficulty: Sections vary from easy, to medium and difficult.
