Click image to see photo description.

A circular walk from Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog in the Cieriog Valley that explores the valley and the rolling hills to the south of the village. The route uses a section of the Upper Ceiriog Way to reach the summit of Cefn-Hir-fynydd (464 metres) from where there are extensive views across the surrounding area.

Limited on-street parking is available in Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog (grid ref. SJ157328). As an alternative patrons can park at The Hand in the centre of the village. After parking, walk east along the road signed to Oswestry. Continue along the road for about 5400 metres and turn left onto the first signed footpath. The path, with occasional yellow waymarks, crosses fields to Ty'n-y-fedw after which the route soon enters woodland. Exiting the trees continue across a field to join a track (grid ref. SJ176335).

Turn sharp right along the rising track. Keep right at the first fork and shortly after keep right again at the next junction of tracks. Continue uphill on the clear track to reach a lane (grid ref. SJ171327). Go straight across and continue climbing. After 400 metres you reach a cross track. Turn right to follow the Upper Ceiriog Way. The clear track takes you across of Cefn-Hir-fynydd and down to a lane at Llidiart-cae-hir (grid ref. SJ146310).

Bear left along the lane and take the first footpath on the right over a stile. After crossing the first field you join a clearer track which leads down to Cyrchynan Ucha farm. Pass to the left of two large barns and continue northeast on a rising track. The track soon fades and becomes a grassy path. As you start to descend go through a gate on the right (grid ref. SJ151321) and descend to a lane. Turn left downhill back to the start.
