Date: Sunday 25th February 2018 Grade: Red +
 
Description: From Llanarmon we set off NW along the Afon Ceiriog through woods and over farmland on good tracks but with some very muddy sections and several stiles.

A steep ascent heading north, again on a good track, takes us up over remote heather clad moorland towards the summit of Moel Fferna. Some areas are rather boggy but generally the going is easy on good paths. Moel Fferna summit, on a good day, is a great view point towards the Berwyns, Snowdonia and Llangollen.

Descending east we reach the Ceiriog forest then another excellent track allows easy progress SE down to Afon Teirw which we cross to pick up the Upper Ceiriog Way back to Llanarmon. Initially this  involves an ascent which we could do without at the end of the day but the bridleway is fairly easy underfoot.

This walk is just a Red+ due to distance but most of the walking is on good paths. The first few km over farmland have some very muddy sections and there are brief boggy areas on high around Moel Fferna.
