Clywedog Gorge now more accessible to more users.

22nd December 2015

A lot of work was carried out in the Clywedog Gorge area in 2015 and the route is now far more accessible to walkers, cyclists and equestrians.

The very rocky descents to the bridge in the gorge were graded and widened by machine to remove a surface that has, in the past, been described as a ‘grade 1 rock climb’!

Powys County Council Countryside volunteers also spent two days widening and improving the existing bridge. It isn’t an easy site to get to with materials so quite a lot of plank carrying was the first task of the day.

It’s a great area for a day’s exploration and you can park near Glaslyn or Dylife and get onto Glyndŵr’s Way easily. Pick a good day and take a walk up to the summit of Foel Fadian for fantastic 360 degree views.
