Group Walks In Llangollen
Llangollen is a beautiful town and I organise regular walks and runs starting from key locations in Llangollen such as the Canal, Horseshoe Pass, the Panorama Walk, the Aqueduct & Viaduct in Chirk, and of course going up to the famous Castell Dinas Bran aka “Crow Castle”. The views are spectacular, there are countless trails to explore, and a lot of the roads are in a similar condition to the trails! Jokes aside, if you like the wilderness with some ‘undulations’ and stopping for lots of photos, then you’ll LOVE Llangollen.
The trails are steeped in history with hunting tribes roaming the area back in the stone age, there are stone circles and standing stones dating back to neolithic times, and a well known castle overlooking the town! Wandering the trails make you appreciate how many people have walked the trail before you, and I often wondered who was the first person to ever walk that trail, and why!

Meet 9am Outside Ponderosa Cafe LL20 8DR
This is a mostly circular walk. Starting at the Ponderosa Cafe at the top of Horseshoe Pass, we will walk up to the radio masts and if the day is clear we can detour slightly off the path to the remains of Sir Watkin’s Tower in Llandegla.
We will continue on along the edge of the forest and over the board walks to the top of World’s End along the Panorama Walk, then take a trail over to the Airman’s Grave.
Our return journey will take some of the trails back to Cyrn-y-Brain and then back down to the Ponderosa Cafe where we can finish with a hot drink and cake.

Fun, Friendly & Inclusive Walks Around Llangollen
My organised walks are very social and about enjoying and experiencing the route together, don’t forget to bring a camera! I recommend bringing a bag with some snacks, water, and a phone. I also highly recommend downloading the What3Words app, although I don’t expect anyone to get lost it’s a brilliant app if you need to share a precise location when out in the middle of nowhere!
Nobody will get left behind and I will normally be towards the back looking after you and making sure everybody is ok. If anyone wants to walk on ahead I will also set a point on the track to stop and regroup.
Each walk starts and finishes at a local cafe so if you have time you can pop in for a drink or some food after.
