Trail 8

Illey Wilderness Trail

Very large Arenig boulder
Quartz boulder, Broadhidley Wood

This trail starts at the visitor centre at Woodgate Valley Country Park where there is plenty of parking.  It requires a level of physical fitness as it goes into the countryside where there are stiles to cross and potentially muddy conditions.   From the same starting point you can also do a walk within Woodgate Valley Country park, Trail 4 – see separate webpage.

You can obtain a printed copy of the trail guide at the launch. After the launch event, the guide (folded double-sided A3 size) is available from the Earth Heritage Trust at

You can print off a copy yourself by downloading the A4 version (4 pages) here.
