Twm Path - 2 miles, extendable to 3-4 miles
2 miles but can be extended to 3-4 miles. Easy walking though can be very wet in places after rain or meltwater. To download a full description select HERE
Walk up the hill on the main road from the Village Centre on the left hand pavement. Pass the Swan Inn and site of the old war memorial. Turn left at the clearly marked Twm Path road sign. Proceed up the hill which bears left and continue straight on in front of the houses to the right.
Continue to right of old stone building and then, ignoring footpath sign, slight left still on the track.
The next section can get very swampy after rain. Either have a happy time splashing through in wellingtons, or negotiate the stony edges to keep a bit drier.
The path then becomes much drier and is easy to follow. It looks as though it could have been an old drover’s road with hedges and walls either side.
After a short dog leg the path continues along the edge of a field. Keep the hedge to your left. (The path here used to have hedges either side but the right hand edge was bulldozered away some time ago.)
Another dog leg at the end of the field takes you onto a cinder track which you stay on until arriving at a cross roads. You now have three alternatives:
1. To keep the walk short, turn left at the crossroads. Walk down the road (called Ffordd Las) under the canvass of trees to a “T” junction at the top of a steep hill.  Turn left along Swan Lane to emerge at the main road just up the hill from the Village Centre.
2. Turning to the right at the cross roads takes you uphill to the Owain Glyndwr pub. Turn right at top of the hill in front of the pub and continue along the Glyndwr Road until it descends down to the main road. Turn right and stay on the pavement downhill to the Village Centre.
3. For a bit more on the Twm Path and footpaths, continue straight on at the cross road, along Fford y Fron until the road bends sharp right. Rather than take the road continue straight on along the footpath. On reaching a gate, the footpath takes a turn for the worse to the left. Follow this old footpath downhill. It is rough underfoot and shares the route with a stream after heavy rain. It emerges at Ysgubor Onn. Follow the lane left here to a main road. Turn left down the hill at the main road. It is tarmac all the way back now. Turn left just after the turn to Nercwys village and follow the narrow road, Ffordd Pentre Bach, to a “Y”junction. Turn left here up the immediate steep hill to the junction with Ffordd Las. Right here and along the Swan Lane back to the main road above the Village Centre.
