This month's ARS (Audlem Ramblers Society) walk is along the Dee valley in North Wales on Saturday 10th May. The walk will be from Llangollen with a number of alternatives being considered.
Firstly, an 11 mile walk to Carrog, catching a steam train back. Secondly, a shorter 7 mile walk to Glyndyfrdwy, again with a steam train back. The third alternative is the full 15 mile walk to Corwen, catching the bus back.
Whilst this is called the Dee valley walk, it is in fact quite hilly and the route to Carrog does involve about 800m of climbing, although not all in one go! A decision can be made as to how far anyone walks on the day. It should be noted that the train service is pretty infrequent but there is also the alternative of a bus service. It was used on a recent ARS walk and proved reliable.
Anyone coming on a walk for the first time with ARS should ensure they have suitable hiking boots and adequate wet-weather gear. Accidents can happen, as in last month's walk in the Peak District when a slip resulted in a broken leg and rescue by the Staffordshire Air Ambulance.
Meet on Audlem car park at 8.00am.
