The Forge near Ruthin - a Clwydian Round

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

With a pub every 6km, a round might well be in order. The walk starts high in the Clwydian Hills and drops to two villages by woodlands and limestone outcrops, before rising again to join Offa's Dyke National Trail. The going is mostly good, with a lot of tracks but a fair amount of ups and downs.

The Sun Inn at Eryrys has been under new management for approximately 8 years. There is no longer a shop, but the pub is extremely pleasant and extensively refurbished with a very welcoming and attentive owner. You can even book a holiday let; a 2 bedroom flat above the pub. A very relaxing place to stop for a mid-walk break.

Can I suggest that the comment about the change in style of the stile attached to WM28 is switched to WM27. I only noticed this comment having passed the stile and would have been able to have photo of the new stile had I known earlier.

A truly excellent round. I started at WM 5 where there is a large layby used by walkers. This means that the Raven (in Llanarmon-yn-Ial) is about half-way round where I took an excellent lunch (though food is only served at lunchtime at the weekends). Jim's guidance is ever very clear bar the couple of points below: I went astray between WM7 and WM8 as there is another track to the left before the correct one. This incorrect track turns left too much and heads roughly north rather than roughly east that the correct track heads. I should remember to check the map more often! Also just before WM3 the path leaves the main track and crosses a stile more obviously than the left fork in the guide implies. The section also includes several additional stiles omitted from the current guidance.

Smashing walk with many varied views. Second half of the walk is quite strenuous. Climb is short and steep up Moel y Plas.
