Lane Walking around Glyndyfrdwy

As part of my series on lane walks that can be completed when the surrounding countryside is sodden - and perhaps with a pushchair in any weather, I had a crack last weekend at Craig y Rhos, a hill just north directly north of Glyndyfrdwy in the Dee Valley.

I suggest parking in the area of the train station, with its delightful signal box. I had one just like it one Christmas - made by Hornby!

Cross the bridge across the Dee.

Turn right along the lane to the phone box and take a left up the hill.

Path takes a hairpin bend as it climbs uphill.

When the lane reaches the top, the woods are behind us and there are clear views.

You come down the lane in front of you to this cattle grid. The lane intersects here with the Dee Valley Way. Take the lane to your left - almost doubling back. This will take you back to the start on an easy downhill stretch (you will have earned it!)
