The Corwen Walking Festival includes walks around Corwen itself to find out about the history of the Town to a high level ridge walk along the Berwyn which reaches over 800 metres in height. There are guided walks on both days and you have the choice of doing a full day walk or with some of the shorter walks you could do one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The area around Corwen is in the Clwydian and Dee Valley Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and even from the main car park in the heart of Corwen you can see why. Just looking up you will see the Caer Drewyn hillfort looking down over the town. Corwen is situated on the A5 at one end of the magnificent and majestic Dee Valley.

Most of the walks are free and start at 9 – 9.30am but check here for full details.

    If you are driving down the A5 over the bank holiday weekend and drive through Corwen look out for the festival banners on the lamppost and the feather flags for the event. If anyone wants a free walking map for the area email us and we will post one to you. Corwen is a great venue for walkers and for the festival we have free parking.
