pub walk

A circular pub walk, from The Dinorben Arms in Bodfari, Denbighshire. The Dinorben Arms sits proudly within the village centre, making the perfect destination for refreshments before or after your walk. The walking route climbs high into the surrounding hills, with rolling grass pastures and beautiful woodland, providing stunning panoramic views. On the return leg, your walk follows part of the Offa's Dyke Path long-distance trail, before crossing the River Wheeler and the old rail line on the way back into the village. The route has several long and steep climbs and descents throughout. You will need to negotiate several kissing gates, some flights of steps plus 14 stiles. Almost all of these stiles are very tall with low or narrow footplates (or, in one case, missing footplates making it a vertical wooden ladder) and have tight wire mesh fence surrounds. This means the stiles will be difficult for less agile people and all dogs will need a lift over. If you are walking with a dog that you cannot easily lift over stiles, then this walk is not for you. The paths through woodland and pastures are generally good, but can be muddy in part. You will be sharing most of the grass pastures with sheep. The final loop (which can be avoided if you prefer) involves crossing the A541 twice, within a 40mph stretch. Allow 2 hours.
