These very popular walks have been devised by Mark Crane, Minafon, Rowen.  Feel free to print them.   Leaflets for each walk are available in the Rowen phone box. Feel free to leave a donation towards the printing costs.

Note:  Kate Humble stayed in Rowen for three weeks in August 2017, while filming nearby. She said that she had walked nearly all of our Ten Circular Walks from Rowen, with Teg her dog.

  • All of the walks are on quiet lanes and public footpaths.
  • Please follow the guidelines of the Countryside Code and the Dog Walking code. See links below.
  • Do not allow your dog to foul the footpaths.
  • The weather can change suddenly here. Go prepared.
  • Wear strong shoes or walking boots, and take waterproofs, warm clothing, hat and suncream (hopefully) and food and drink.
  • All of the walks are on Ordnance Survey map OL17.
  • Walk 9 on Tal y Fan is a serious mountain walk.
  • We hope you enjoy our walks. We’d love to have your comments, email mark@rowenconwy.org.uk.
