The Ceiriog Valley, west of Chirk, must be one of the most neglected and yet one of the most beautiful areas for walking in Wales, if not in Britain. This walk, based on the village of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog, makes a circuit of one of the hills around the village. It can be divided into three parts and is something of a sandwich, in that the start and finish are very easy and most beautiful, while the middle section is the most strenuous albeit with the widest views. There are lovely woods, old drove roads and the added attraction of absolute peace and quiet; we did see some horse riders in the distance at one point but met not one other walker on a blazing hot early April day. This walk can be combined with Walk 6935 to give a longer walk of 12km and over 400m of ascent. The walks meet at Waymark 11 (6902) and 7 (6935).

Instructions fine up to waymark 11. Then the arrow sends in the wrong direction. When found waymark 12 OK. The way onto the bridleway looked impossible and certainly not accessible for horses. I was not alone getting lost as a couple following the same walk were just as confused. We eventually got back to the village but not the right way. Glorious day and views.
