The Council has devised 4 circular walks in the Community for residents and visitors to the area who enjoy walking in the open countryside. Details of the walks can be accessed by clicking below.

For those who prefer to 'keep their boots clean' a guided walk of the historic village of Hawarden is obtainable fron the Community Council's office and Hawarden Post Office.

Bilberry Wood Walk 2012:This is a largely wooded walk which skirts the Castle parkland and private Hawarden Estate, crossing a stream near the ruined corn mill. Following the long straight track to Cherry Orchard Farm, the path returns via a quiet roadway, rising above the by-pass to give good views of surrounding countryside. The final stage, curving round past the estate woodland and rejoining Tinkersdale along its bend, completes its course at the car park.

Tinkersdale/Oaks Farm/Higher House Circular Walk:This is a circular walk over varied and undulating farmland. Open views are to be had especially on the returning stretch.

Mancot and Moor Circular walk:This walk traverses the fields of Mancot and Moor by old rights of way, green lanes and the quieter roads in two interlinking loops. Most of the terrain is level, however the ground may be muddy and so appropriate footwear is required.

Ewloe/Ewloe Green Circular Walk:This walk which takes approximately one hour, crosses fields to Ewloe Green and returns to pass close to Wepre Wood and Castle (an additional detour is indicated). The route drops down over fields and tracks towards Shotton, returning to Ewloe via a metalled lane.

The Council also sponsors the Community Walks Group which provides free conducted walks every Friday. Please refer to the Hawarden Community Walks page in Community Information section for further details.
