Welcome to the 2014 Corwen Walking Festival
The Corwen Walking Festival will take place over the weekend the 30th August to the 31st August 2014. Corwen is a fantastic venue for this type of event and is a wonderful base for walking enthusiasts as it offers walks from the town that suit all levels of walking. From walks around Corwen itself finding out about the history of the Town to a high level ridge walk along the Berwyn reaching over 800 metres in height the Corwen Walking Festival has it all. We are offering guided walks on both days and you have the choice of doing a full day walk and with some of the shorter walks you could do one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
We also have some daytime skills lectures going on throughout the day and some evening entertainment and Cotswold Outdoor will be on site so you can attend the festival simply to see what is happening in the town itself attend a skills talk and look at the outdoor equipment.
The area around Corwen is in the Clwydian and Dee Valley Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and even from the main car park in the heart of Corwen you can see why. Just looking up you will see the Caer Drewyn hillfort looking down over the town. Corwen is situated on the A5 at one end of the magnificent and majestic Dee Valley.
All walks for the walking festival will be free of charge with only the entrance fee to Rug Chapel being chargeable.
