Brymbo – Mount Pleasant – Bwlchgwyn – Mount Sion - Brymbo - 5 miles / 3.5 hours

This walk starts at the George and Dragon pub (grid ref SJ 294541) in the village of Brymbo a few miles north west of Wrexham. There are some excellent panoramic views of Wrexham and the Cheshire Plain along the way.

The route descends through picturesque wooded valleys and crosses open farmland, passing many of the features from the area’s industrial past. The mix of habitats allows the walker to experience something new throughout the seasons.


From Wrexham town centre take the A525 towards Ruthin. After crossing the A483 take the second right signposted for Brymbo. Take the second right along this road after approximately 1 mile. At the T junction turn right onto the B5101. Pass through the village of Lodge and the pub “Y Tai” on the right, before turning left up the hill by the sign for Pen y Garth residential home. Turn right following the car park signs.


There is a small car park opposite the school on the road to the pub. The George and Dragon can be seen uphill on the left from the car park entrance.
