Offa's Dyke Path National Trail
285 km / 177 miles
For over 60 miles the route of this National Trail runs along or close to the 8th century dyke passing many other historical sites. The Trail meanders along the east side of the Wye Valley to Monmouth, crosses lowland farmland to Pandy and Hatterrall Ridge which is then followed to Hay-on-Wye. The Radnorshire Hills are crossed to Knighton as is the hill country of Clun. The next part of the route is across the plain of Montgomery, along the Severn Valley and across the Vale of Llangollen to the Clwydian Hills.
The waymarked Three Castles Walk (Mons) (19 miles and on OS mapping) is a circular walk from Offa’s Dyke visiting Skenfrith, White and Grosmont castles. The St Winefride’s Way is a 14-mile pilgrim’s trail that links St Asaph’s Cathedral, Denbighshire, with St Winefride’s Well in Holywell, Flintshire.
The LDWA National Trails Register offers certificates for completers of several British National Trails.
