Walkers Are Welcome
In 2012, Corwen achieved the 'Walkers are Welcome' accolade and we are now working with businesses in Corwen to ensure that walkers have the best experience when visiting Corwen. We are also working with Denbighshire County Council Countryside Services to ensure that our footpath system is well maintained and developed.
As well as many footpaths and bridleways Corwen, has the waymarked and very well maintained routes listed below. All are accessed from the Town and all feature within the walking festival programme. These routes are the key paths in Corwen.
- The Dee Valley Way
- The North Berwyn Way
- The Brenig Way
- Pen Y Pigyn
- Gro Isa
- Corwen Cutting
- Corwen to Cynwyd railway
- Caer Drewyn
Corwen sits with the whole Berwyn Mountain Ridge behind it and walks from the town itself can take visitors to Liberty Hall and on to the highest point in the Dee Valley and Clwydian Range 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', Moel Fferna at 630 metres high. The Berwyn Ridge contains the peaks of Cadair Bronwen (784 m), Cadair Berwyn (827 m) and Moel Sych (827m).
Corwen makes a great base for walks on this vastly underrated range of mountains. In total, there are twenty four peaks over 600 metres high in the Berwyn Mountains.
With cafes and restaurants, hotels, guest houses, caravan parks and campsites all within close proximity and with some of the best walks in the land, we assure you that both the welcome and the countryside will ensure that you return to Corwen again and again.
