GOING for a scenic walk and visiting the pub are two activities British people tend to enjoy as the summer months arrive, but mixing the two together, now you're talking! 

Luckily here in Wrexham and Flintshire, we are blessed with some of the best walking routes in North Wales making for some incredible views, whilst in equal measure we are lucky to have a range of pub's and beer gardens considered firm favourites amongst residents.

With this in mind, we asked Leader readers to share their favourite walks which finish with a pub and as ever, their responses did not disappoint. 

Alice Woodfine said: "Walk around Erddig then finish at the Fairfield Tavern. Dog friendly and nice relaxing friendly atmosphere."

Adam Williams suggested: "The Griifin in Mold to the Pentayn. Suitable for all abilities of fitness as it’s slightly downhill."

Andrew Williams added: "From Errdig to Kings Mill, 2 pubs (Red Lion/Kings Mills)."

Scott Williams posted: "Ty Mawr country park , along river to Trevor Aqueduct pub where the canal boats are moored up."


Paul Lindsay recommended: "Start at Minera/New Brighton and follow the Clywedog trail down through the woods to Bersham and the Black Lion (aka Hole in the wall)."

Mol Val said: "I like to go from Trevor up the Garth hill… through Trevor Hall woods, onto the panorama, up to the castle and back down into The Sun Trevor then back to Trevor along the canal and finish at The Telford."

Harvey Campbell added: "Get the train to Chirk then walk along the canal to Llangollen. It’s about 9miles long and obviously on the flat with a few watering holes along the way."

Chris Harrison said: "Anywhere in the direction of the Turf!"

Bryn Williams also suggested: "Loggerheads Country Park up to Cilcain along the Lete trail, through Devils gorge and call in at the White Horse, then walk back and call in the We Three Loggerheads to finish, or you could even walk back via Moel Famau if you want to turn your 5 miles walk to a 8 mile one. Both pubs dog friendly."

With some great suggestions coming in, it would definitely be worth making a note of some of these fantastic local recommendations the next time the sun is out!
