A Corwen Quartet: 3 - Pen-y-Pigyn Woods

The walk starts in the town centre and very quickly takes a rising, well-surfaced path through woodland to a large stone cairn with wide views built in 1863 (restored in 1911) to commemorate the marriage of the Prince of Wales. Forest tracks and paths lead downhill to a point near the A5 bridge over the River Dee, where you can return to the town. This is one of four walks from Corwen that are linked at the A5 bridge over the Dee and so can be joined to make a total of almost ten miles. Alternatively, you can pick and mix, which I think is preferable, as two of the walks are visits to ancient churches that need some time to visit properly.
