Walked from our campsite, Wern Isaf near Llangollan up hill then down lovely views, then along canal towpath to the Pontcysylite Aquaduct and then over it. Amazing structure. Educational but large gaps between railings, so care needs to be taken with small children and dogs.

Walked one day over the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct to Trevor from Frontcysllte and another day from Berwyn Station to Horseshoe Falls and back to Llangollen via the canal. Fantastic views and scenery, with well maintained footpaths and history information available. Well worth the walk.

Definitely worth the walk! Beautiful views from unique viewing platform whilst the canal boats pass by! Brilliant photo opportunity. The whole area is a delight to visit. Good parking craft centre, nice pub or cafe for tea and ice creams If you visit the Llangollen area this trip must not be missed, you will regret! Wonderful place I go back... More

The canal towpath is popular with walkers , joggers and cyclists. There is lots to see , some interesting boats on the canal , great views and you are not far from a bite to eat. Well worth the effort.
