The Alwen Trail

Villages of Hiraethog & Llyn Brenig

The main draw here is Mynydd Hiraethog itself .

This sparsely populated upland expanse of heather moorland and forest, overseen by big skies, has a unique and haunting quality.

Cerrigydrudion is one of the main settlements.

The village, on the A5 at the southern gateway to Hiraethog, has a well-stocked 2½-acre fly fishing lake and Wales’s largest go karting centre at Glan y Gors Park, a British Championship circuit.

Along with the nearby village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, Cerrigydrudion is a good touring base for this largely undiscovered part of the world.

The same can be said for Pentrefoelas, also on the A5.

Stagecoaches use to stop here on the main route into North Wales.

Today’s travellers – especially chocoholics – stop off at the Riverside Chocolate House and Tearoom for delicious hand-made goodies.

Most travellers who venture into Hiraethog inevitably make for Llyn Brenig.

The reservoir and its smaller neighbour Llyn Alwen are packed with leisure facilities for walking, cycling, fishing, sailing and birdwatching.

There’s an excellent visitor centre at Llyn Brenig too, a good starting point for a deeper appreciation of Hiraethog’s rich heritage and history, which stretches back to prehistoric times.

For more cycling, mountain biking and walking (plus horse riding, picnicking and red squirrel spotting) head for the nearby Clocaenog Forest, home to a wide range of wildlife.

Find accommodation in Hiraethog and find out what's on when you plan to visit.

For further information on the Mynydd Hiraethog, visit the Hiraethog website.
