The 135 mile Glyndwr's Way walk is the most recent of the National Trails. It starts at Knighton on the English/Welsh border, crosses the Mid Wales hills to Machynlleth before looping back to finish in Welshpool. Glyndwr's Way is named after Owain Glyndwr, a legendary Welsh nobleman who led a successful revolt against English domination in 1401.
The National Trail is a walk through beautiful remote areas, and is suitable for more experienced walkers. It is an ideal walking holiday for those wanting to get away from the crowds and experience solitude. You will not meet many other walkers! The trail passes over moorland, rolling farmland, woodlands and forest areas with fabulous countryside and views over to the mountains of Snowdonia including Cader Idris.
Highlights of the Path include attractive towns of Knighton, Machynlleth and Llanidloes, Powis Castle, many lakes including Lake Vyrnwy as well as the wild and remote countryside. There is abundant wildlife including buzzards and red kites. The route is fully waymarked.
