Wales is the land of discovery. It is very hard to pin down a good walking route as you could go off in any direction and discover hidden gems and of course stunning scenery without travelling to far. With the changing of seasons to autumn this is the perfect time to get out and explore walks in Wrexham, Flintshire and Denbighshire and get those autumnal photographs for your collection.

It would be impossible to put all the walks in North East Wales on one post…but here are 5 walks to get you started on your autumn adventure. (For more walks visit Mud and Routes website).

Chirk and River Ceiriog Walk 

Chirk Castle, Autumn
Chirk Castle, Wrexham

There is much more to the county of Wrexham than the big town itself. The Countryside around the town is mostly overlooked and there is so much great scenery to see…especially in Autumn. With the Chirk and River Ceiriog walk you will get a real insight into the castle of Chirk and it’s surroundings as it isn’t commonly known that the area of outstanding natural beauty of the Clwydian Range does extend all the way to Chirk Castle. The walk starts you off at the station in Chirk station and the route sees you go towards the National Trust site and then around the forests that shadows the castle. Giving you a great view of the changing of the colours of autumn.

Loggerheads Leete Path

Loggerheads Country Park, Autumn
Loggerheads Country Park, Denbighshire

Set in the heart of the Clwydian Range, Loggerheads Country Park is the base of the AONB and a brilliant start point for many walking adventures. This walk along the Leete Path will take you from Loggerheads through to Cilcain, but whilst on the path you will be in the middle of dense autumn forest for your camera to enjoy. This walk isn’t strenuous so is suitable for all levels and ages and you can even start with a nice tea or coffee at Caffi Florence in the park. This simple route is perfect for seeing the autumn trees and also a great one for the dog (please keep them on a lead at all times!)

The North Berwyn Hills are at the south of the Clwydian Range and the county of Denbighshire. This walk will take you up out of Corwen and into the surrounding hillside eventually leading to Liberty Hall at the top.

The views along this route really give you a feel of autumn and once at the top you are rewarded with that spectacular view which is bound to light up your Instagram feed.

Llangollen Canal Walk to Pontcysyllte

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Autumn
Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Wrexham

The Llangollen Canal Walk takes you from the town of Llangollen to the Pontcysyllte Aqeueduct (rather than a viaduct, as it conveys water) and back. The route starts by visiting the romantic ruins of Castell Dinas Bran before taking the Llangollen Panorama Walk and the Offa’s Dyke National Trail to Trefor and the world famous Pontcysytllte Aqueduct. The route then returns to Llangollen via the Llangollen Canal.

It’s not many times you can go back home tell people we walked over (near) a World Heritage Site on our holidays! This great walk is perfect for those beginners in walking as it doesn’t require much strength and has many places for you to stop off and enjoy a pre-planned lunch or for you to sit in a cafe in town and watch the world go by.
