The Dee Way


A cross-border long distance walking trail following the River Dee, one of the most beautiful and historic rivers in Britain, from sea to source. The route follows the river along both sides of its estuary from Prestatyn in North Wales or Hoylake in England into the heart of the historic city of Chester. It then continues through the borderlands, Llangollen and the stunning Dee Valley, passing beautiful Llyn Tegid at Bala to the river’s source in the mountains of southern Snowdonia.  A key feature is that the trail is supported by easily accessible public transport throughout its length, offering opportunities for day or multi-day walks.


In addition to a continuous long distance walk of up to 142 miles, the Dee Way offers 23 consecutive linear walks linked to local bus services, a 57 1/2 mile Dee estuary walk, and a 14 mile upland circuit of Llyn Tegid.


As well as detailed instructions, maps and guidance notes, the book also provides a fascinating  history of the river from Roman times, including its maritime and industrial past, and of the  many diverse communities the trail passes through.


Accompanying the guidebook is a website - www.thedeeway.com - which provides updates on the trail and a photo gallery where walkers can submit their own photographs.
