good walk for dogs, albeit sometimes on the lead due to sheep. Canal is a really nice strole.

So Like an idiot I spelt the name wrong. The walk starts from Trevor Basin in the main car park (£3 all day - What 3 words origin.grafted.bells) Follow the path to Trevor Basin and go up and over the little bridge over the quays. Exit by the main gate and cross the road to the canal path to Llangollen. Cross over the canal at the first bridge and then at the next bridge pick up Offa's Dyke way and cross the bridge into the field. From here on until you get to Castell Dinas Bran follow Offa's Dyke Way, it well marked with an acorn. When you get to Dinas Bran you have a choice, go up to the Castell, and have a look at the fantastic scenery and then take the path down the other side. If you dont fancy it then there is another path that goes to the right and round the Castell mound. The path takes you down to Llangollen which is a great tourist location and recommended, as is the Bridge End Public house. When you get to Llangollen you will cross the Llangollen Canal. If you go to the town you will need to return to it and turn right along the footpath. Its then a straight and flat 4 miles along a multi modal wide canal path, returning to Trevor . Take the opportunity either on the way out or on the way back to cross the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, you wont regret it I promise

Lovely walk with plenty of places to sit down and take in the scenery. Rocky in places but trail easy to follow.

A strange trail. First part is towards a couple of waterfalls. They are ok. The best one is the curtain waterfall you can walk behind. The walk to Pontneddfachen was away from the river - didn’t feel like a waterfall walk at that point. From Pontneddfachen back was a great walk along the river with some spectacular rapids and falls. The final part of the walk was a poor path and a challenge. Up a ravine and back along a path which was poorly defined - and full of stinging nettles. A tough walk in all not because of height but because of small windy uneven paths with rollercoaster height changes at times.
