Views From Trevor Rocks

Today Liz and I took the dogs on a long walk taking in part of the canal towpath, foot paths up along the top of Trevor Rocks and back via the foot path around the base of Castell Dinas Bran.

Trevor Rocks is part of one of the finest carboniferous limestone escarpments in Britain extending northwards which is nationally important due to the extensive scree slopes and is an Area of Special Scientific Interest according to the guide book 'Walks Around Llangollen And The Dee Valley' by David Berry.  A very useful book with some lovely walks with detailed maps and descriptions.

We were out about four hours and we thoroughly enjoyed the scenery although I was in need of a cuppa by the time we got back to the boat. After all the rain we've had the dogs got really muddy but it was soon washed away. Next job is to clean my boots!
