Glyndŵr's Way (Welsh: Llwybr Glyndŵr) is a long distance footpath in mid Wales. It runs for 135 miles (217 km) in an extended loop through Powys between Knighton and Welshpool.

History

Glyndŵr's Way was granted National Trail status in 2000 to mark the beginning of the third millennium and the 600th year anniversary of an ill-fated but nevertheless long running rebellion in 1400. Its name derives from the early fifteenth century Welsh prince and folk hero Owain Glyndŵr.

Route

With Offa's Dyke Path and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Glyndŵr's Way makes up the third National Trail in Wales. The footpath begins in Knighton, on the English border, where it links with Offa's Dyke Path. Running in a horse-shoe shape , it passes small market towns such as Llanidloes and quiet villages including Abbeycwmhir and Llanfyllin, traversing central Mid Wales to Machynlleth near the Dyfi estuary and back again across Wales via Lake Vyrnwy and the valley of the River Vyrnwy to Welshpool, close to the English border.
