This walk takes us along the beautiful River Dee valley using some sections of the newly rerouted Dee Valley Way.
We start with a couple of steep'ish climbs but not too bad, there are 8 stiles on the way back to Llangollen. The route takes a lovely meander through hill farms with spring lambs in the fields and views of the Llantysilio Mountains and River Dee.
We plan to stop at the Sun Inn at Rhewl (historic drovers Inn) for a break however, do bring food, snacks and drink.
We'll visit the Horseshoe Falls and finish the walk on a pretty stretch of the Llangollen Canal where you will see the horse drawn boats, to end at the Canal Wharf Café between 4.00 and 4.30pm.
