Caer Drewyn Hillfort activity header

Caer Drewyn Hillfort, Corwen

Caer Drewyn Hillfort
This ancient monument is testament to what was once an impressive hill fort, overlooking the River Dee, and what were once Iron Age route-ways through the rolling mountains. At a later time a stone fort structure was built here. Today just the stone built rampart exists, and the hill itself of course, offering amazing views of Corwen. There are both steeper and more gradual routes up to the forte, with a bench on the steeper route, to rest and have a picnic before continuing up. For those in good health, this is an easily conquered walk.
