The Brenig Way

The Brenig way is a 32 mile route for walkers that goes from Corwen to Llyn Brenig. On leaving Corwen the route comes right through Cynwyd and is therefore very accessible from the centre and cottage.

The route has only just opened and takes walkers into some of the quietest parts of Denbighshire, where peaceful paths snake though natural woodlands and along steep sided river valleys.  It follows ancient drovers roads and passes even more ancient cairns, navigating its way through the Clocaenog Forest to reveal stunning views of the Clwydian range at Pincyn Llys and around Cyffylliog. It culminates in a steady, but isolated, climb along the Afon Clywedog, passing just a handful of houses, to reach Llyn Brenig at the Archaeological Trail.  This is the site of a Bronze Age burial ground, with several ritual cairns creating a sense of solitude against the stunning backdrop of Hiraethog and Snowdonia. A gentle walk around the lake is completed by walking across the Brenig dam to finish the walk at the Visitors Centre for a well-earned treat.
The route of the Brenig Way has been marked with distinctive waymarkers based on the stone cairns found along the way. It has been designed to be walked over two or three days in either direction.
By staying in the centre or cottage you would be able to complete the whole route over a couple of days and could do this with two vehicles. Due to the nature of the walk it is an  ideal route for both young people and adults. More information on the route can be found at If you get round to walking the route why not send us some photos or feedback so we can include it within the blog.
