St Asaph River Walk
Enjoy a nice waterside walk along the River Elwy on this walk in the historic North Wales city of St Asaph. The settlement is notable as the second-smallest city in Britain in terms of population and urban area. This circular walk takes you around along the river paths in the city centre, visiting St Asaph Common on the way.
The walk starts on the bridge over the river, just to the east of the cathedral. The noteworthy cathedral dates back 1,400 years, while the current building dates from the 13th century. From the bridge you can pick up the riverside footpaths on both sides of the Elwy.
Two long distance, waymarked walking trails run past the city. You pick up the epic Clwydian Way and follow it to the nearby town of Rhuddlan where you can visit the 13th century castle and enjoy a walk along the River Clwyd. You can also pick up the North Wales Path here and head to Rhyl or Prestatyn.
