Denbighshire Sir Ddinbych / Wrexham 3 Peaks Hiking Challenge

Denbighshire & Wrexham – Wales

This challenge includes the highest point in Wrexham, Cadair Bronwen, which is on the Berwyn mountains. In fact, you get to count this mountain twice, with a walk along to its North East top as the second summit to bag.

Continue North East to another summit on Cerrig Coediog (which means ‘Woody Stones’), right on the border with Denbighshire and Powys.

Powys and Wrexham 3 Peaks Hiking Challenge

Powys & Wrexham – Wales

These are three peaks along a ridge line, so once you get there, this should be quite an easy challenge to complete, despite their heights.

There’s a footpath up from the valley on the south side. Once you get to the top, the summit of the first peak is just left of the footpath.

Note that there is a cairn but the actual highest point is a little further up to the rocky outcrop. However, for this challenge, you can claim the hill by taking a photo at the cairn if you wish so that your family doesn’t have to go scrambling up just to claim a few more meters.

After that first summit, just head east along the ridgeline footpath to claim the other two peaks.





Peak 1: Craig Berwyn
790 m



Peak 2: Tomle
740.6 m
Summit Hint: Technically the ground 1m from small cairn, near fence corner, is the highest point, though photo at cairn will do

Wrexham 3 Peaks Hiking Challenge

Wrexham – Wales

Pen-yr-eryr is not far from Llangollen on the Berwyn mountain range.  At the foot of the hill in the village of Pentre, you can walk over the bridge and follow the footpath up to the next summit, and then continue on to the path to the last summit, which just pokes out of the top of the Ceiriog Forest.

Please note that there’s no defining summit of Pen-yr-eryr, such as a trig point or cairn, and that the summit is surrounded by stone walls. If there’s no public right of way, simply get as close as you can with a picture of Pen-yr-eryr in the background.





Peak 1: Pen-yr-eryr
592 m



Peak 2: Bryn Du / Y Fawnen
563 m



Peak 3: Creigiau'r Hyrddod
548 m

How to Complete the Challenge

  1. Click the button underneath each photo to view the summit on a map. Plan your route to each summit, making sure it is a summit that is suitable for your family.
  2. Try and do all three summits within 24hrs... or a weekend 😉
    Track how many miles you walk in doing this challenge.
  3. Get as close to each summit as is safe and legal to do so, then take a group selfie.
  4. Come back to this website and record your 3 Peaks Hiking Challenge result, uploading your three photos and recording your mileage. You'll be added to the hall of fame for the challenge, awarded more Active Family Points, and your mileage might have earned your family a new hiking badge.

Note

The summits on this page are suggestions for your own organised activity and not part of the official Three Peaks Challenges.

Some challenges are easier than others. Some challenges have serious peaks, such as the Munros, and should only be undertaken with the appropriate skills and experience. Remember to only take on the challenges appropriate for your family. The button to view the map for each peak can help you with that planning.

If these challenges have inspired you to take on the official Three Peaks Challenge be sure to visit the official website, where you can also join in on an organised Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge or the Welsh Three Peaks Challenge.
