Corndon Hill

2 miles (4 km)

Climb to this prominent hill in Powys and enjoy wonderful views over the Long Mynd and Stiperstones on this lovely walk on the Wales-England border.
You can start the walk from a parking area just north of the hill, near the Mitchell's Fold stone circle. From here it is a short walk to the hill summit which stands at a height of 1,683ft. The view from here is first class with the Shropshire Hills and Welsh Mountains stretching out in front of you for miles. On a clear day the Clee Hills, Severn Valley, Clwydian Hills, Cheshire Plain, Cadair Idris, the Rhinogs and the Black Mountainsare all in focus.
After taking in the view you can return the same way or turn it into a longer circular walk by descending south east and then south from the summit. The footpath then loops round to Lan Fawr near Priest Weston before returning to the car park.
The walk to Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle starts from the same car park so you can easily visit the fascinating Bronze Age stones at the same time.
Corndon Hill is located just a few miles west of the wonderful Stiperstones Nature Reserve. It's a great place to continue your walking with its craggy rock outcrops, gorgeous heather heathland and more wonderful views from the elevated position.
The long distance Shropshire Way also runs nearby and is another great way to explore this beautiful area on foot.
Also of interest is the Bishop's Castle Ring long distance footpath. It passes just to the west of the hill and will take you on a tour of the countryside and hills surrounding the Shropshire market town of Bishop's Castle.
