STURDY WATERPROOF FOOTWEAR:
FOOD: bring drinks, snacks / packed lunch enough for a full day out
WEATHER: keep an eye on the weather in the days leading-up to the walk, a waterproof jacket and trousers are recommended
DOGS: are welcome; however, the owner(s) must take care of their dog's every need(s) and (as it is lambing time and ground nesting birds are still on their nests) dogs must be kept on a lead. If more than one dog on this walk you may be asked to keep them separate and away from other walkers who may not like dogs.

We will use the local bus* (price included) which leaves from just across the road at 9.15am and will take us to Glyndyfrdwy.
*We are keen to support our local bus service when we can.
This walk starts with a steep-ish climb and a few stiles before the 5 UGLY SISTERS of the Llantysillio Ridge.
The Sisters do offer a great challenge as they are steep however, they also offer great views of the Berwyn Mountains, River Dee Valley, Clwydian Range and Snowdonia.
There is café at the halfway point but do bring enough food and drink for the walk - then, the route is relatively easy back to Llangollen.
NOTE: walking poles are strongly recommended for the climbs and descends.
We aim to finish back in Llangollen at 4.00pm.
FREE CLIF BAR
