Overview

Book online and enjoy exclusive savings on Exodus 10 Day Walking Offa's Dyke Path (North). Offa's Dyke path runs for 177 miles from the North Wales coast at Prestatyn to Chepstow on the Severn Estuary. The route, a National Trail since 1971 follows a wide border rampart, built by Offa, the King of Mercia, in the 8th century to protect his kingdom from his rivals in what is now Wales. The trail passes through eight counties. Our walk covers the Northern section of the trail from Prestatyn to Knighton and goes through two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Clwydian Range and the Shropshire...read more Hills.Walking southwards pass through the highest of the Clwydian Hills, Moel Famau the tallest at 554m is crowned with the remains of the Jubilee Tower and has views to Snowdonia and the Mersey estuary and Liverpool.

Walk on heather clad hills and past Iron Age forts, before descending to World's End and arriving at the riverside town of Llangollen. Cross the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, after which the route then follows more closely the Welsh/English border, crossing several times on the way to Knighton.Accommodation is in a mix of friendly guesthouses, pubs and hotels, some of which are off the main route of the Offa's Dyke Path.

Itinerary

Arrive in this small village 6 miles south of the trailhead at Prestatyn.

A short transfer takes you to the trailhead to walk the first section. From Prestatyn Beach head into the Clwydian Range, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, crossing a series of stone stiles that are unique to this section of the trail. Enjoy spectacular views across to Snowdonia as you head toward Bodfari. Return transfer to Rhuallt.

Take a short transfer back to the route at Bodfari. Discover the higher Clwydian peaks, including Moel Famau, the tallest at 554m and crowned with the remains of the Jubilee Tower. Enjoy a series of Iron and Bronze Age hillforts at Foel Fenlli, Moel Arthur and Penycloddiau. Leave the trail to arrive in Llanarmon-yn-Ial.

Head through Llandegla Forest and over heather-clad moorland, home to the largest Black Grouse population in Wales. Pass through World's End to finally reach the dramatic limestone crags of the Eglwysegs as you near Llangollen.

At 38m high, Pontcysllte Aqueduct is the world's highest navigable aqueduct and has been recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009. Cross this feat of engineering on your way to Llwynmawr.

Enjoy stunning 360 degree views from the summit of Moelydd and discover the mining area of Nantmawr, before entering the previously busy limestone quarry of Llwynmawr Quarry.

This almost flat stage follows stretches of the Montgomeryshire Canal and the River Severn. Llanymynech high street sits right on the Welsh-English border, dividing this small town between two nations!.

Another relatively flat stage, the Trail and the Dyke itself follow the true national boundary closely here. A detour to Montgomery town is well worth it if you have the time.

Often thought of as one of the toughest sections of the Trail, what a way to end your trip. Discover the Shropshire Hills AONB and some of the best preserved sections of Offa's Dyke on Llanfair Hill.

Depart Knighton after breakfast.
