Glyndwrs Way, opened in 2002 is the latest National Trail in Wales. The 132 mile route runs through some of the finest scenery in Wales. It is named after Owain Glyndwr, the legendary Welsh leader who led a successful revolt against the English in 1400. The walk goes through a variety of scenery and terrain, from river edge, through ancient woodland, above lakes and reservoirs and into open hill-country. The route follows a line through long green valleys and secluded hill-country of the Radnorshire Hills where much of Glyndwrs campaign against the English was conducted.
