    Walk distance: 12.5 miles, with a total of 2318’ of ascent.

    Park in the Wynnstay Inn car park on the B4580, in the centre of Llansilin, as far from the entrance as possible.  Alternatively, we can use the nearby car park, just south of the inn, which is also on the B4580.

    Meet at the Abbey at 8.30, or advise if you intend going directly to the walk start.
    Journey time: 45 mins    Distance to start: 25 miles
    Walk start: Approx. 09.20
    Toilet facilities are available very near the Wynnstay Inn but there are none available during the course of the walk.
    This circular walk will initially see us head in a northerly direction, to Pen-y –gwely Reservoir, on the Llwyber Ceiriog Trail, which we follow until the Trail takes a turn to the NE. There, we continue a track that takes us to The Upper Ceiriog Trail, which we will use to take us SW, until taking a left hand turn to Fron and then  the most direct route back to the start.
    The route is reasonably demanding, being hilly. It includes, for instance a climb of 555’ but you will be rewarded with some excellent views. It is based, in the main, on official trails, bridleways, roads and other well defined pathways.
