Navigation Walk

Walk 23 Navigation

  • Sunday 11.00 am
  • Distance 7 km
  • Height gained 400 metres of ascent

This walk allows participants to try out the practical skills of navigation on the paths and hillside above Corwen and below Moel Fferna. You will be bussed up to the paths on the North Berwyn Way above Cynwyd so that participants can concentrate on the navigation skills.

For those people doing this walk they may want to come to come to the Navigation skills lecture taking place at 6.30 pm on the Saturday evening

Skills that can be practised include

  • Map symbol recognition
  • Pacing
  • Timing
  • Taking bearings from a map
  • Walking on a bearing
  • Contours
  • Grid references
You will need a 1:25,000 ordnance survey map sheet number 255 Llangollen and Berwyn and a compass to get the most out of the time out on the hill. Shops in Corwen including the Post Office sell maps and our own pop up Cotswold Outdoor shop will have both maps and compasses for sale on the day.
