Leader – Ray McNamara. 8.25 miles.
We leave the coach at Chirk, so “Boots on” early!! From the town centre we drop down to follow the river under a viaduct and aqueduct, until we reach the Pont Faen bridge. from here we climb up through woods to follow a lane past Chirk Castle’s ornate gates. A permissive path takes us through the castle estate past the castle. Footpaths, tracks and lanes take us back down to the river at Pontfadog. from here we follow more footpaths and tracks up the valley until we arrive at Glyn Ceiriog. The walk does have some steady climbs but we will have plenty of stops.
