This location can be accessed by following the signs from both the Corwen Town Centre or for the less exercised enthused, ironically from the Corwen Leisure Centre Car Park (free). The walk is well sign posted and as you climb up the views improve a...More

Gorgeous walk from near to Corwen. We chose the short steep route to the top, there is a bench seat so far up to sit and have a picnic and a rest. The views are worth the effort. We took the longer less steep route...More

If you like walking, and views, you'll love Caer Drewyn Hillfort and the other Llantysilio peaks further north beside Bryneglwys.

This hill fort is worth a walk up, but not for people with breathing problems as can make you very breathless, but the views from the top fantastic

Good climb, well worthwhile for the views at the top. Well signposted so shouldn't get lost from Corwen.
