Ceiriog Valley

Sunday 21 May 2017. I’ve been joined by Amanda and Josephine who will be with me for the rest of this week. I wanted to start them off with a gentle walk however, with a 650ft climb right from the start, it was anything but easy. I had a choice of routes today all of which should have started at Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog, passing through Tregeiriog on the way. There was a wedding taking place in Llanarmon DC this weekend and parking was a problem so we drove back to Tregeiriog to start the walk.

The steep climb up to Rhyd Caledwynt required a couple of breathers along the way and a coffee stop near the top. Having climbed uphill, we then descended just as steeply for lunch in Llanarmon DC. The last part of the walk, running east along the Ceiriog valley, took us through some beautiful bluebell woods which made a nice end to a good walk. It was only 5.7 miles with a total ascent of just over 1,000ft.
