Summary: The Llangollen Round is a 33 mile circular route taking in all the summits around the picturesque Vale of Llangollen, written by local author Judy Smith. The route is a magnificent high-level walk with Llangollen as the centrepiece in its valley below. It can be regarded as a 1-day challenge, or taken at a more leisurely pace over 2, 3, or 4 days. Terrain includes heather moorland, limestone grassland, deciduous and coniferous forest and open mountain tops. Views are superb and range from Snowdonia to the mountains of mid-Wales. Wildlife abounds in particular, Red Kites which is regularly seen circling over the moorlands. The route crosses Telford's renowned aqueduct at Pontcysyllte although there is an alternative for those who have not a head for heights. Certain points of the route are accessible by public transport, including the very scenic Llangollen Railway.
