Hill Walking in the Vale of Llangollen

Kit & Austin getting to grips with the navigation

On Tuesday, I was working for my friends at ProAdventure running a hill walking day for a family who wanted to see the views around Llangollen and to improve their navigational skills.

Our route started from the Chainbridge Hotel and we made our way out to Rhewl before tackling the steep ascent to the summit of Moel y Gamelin (577m). Along the way we looked at map features, setting the map, interpreting contours and the young each took a turn at leading the way. With the weather closing in headed off to the next summit Moel y Faen (548m) before descending to the Ponderosa for a well earned rest and a cuppa.

From the Ponderosa we took the Clwydian Way which meanders gently downhill though open moorland and glorious woodland to the Abbey. Here, the weather changed for the better and we were treated with fantastic views of the Abbey basked in sunshine as we made our way over Coed Hyrddyn. From here it was a short walk back to the Chainbridge Hotel.

The clients had a great day and were really pleased with the diversity and changes of environment on this walk so a job well done on this occasion.
