This walk itself is approx 3 miles towards the end it leads you back onto the canal to the start point.
Reaching the end of our walk, we had a lovely lunch and a well earned pint at the Poachers Pocket Pub web link - http://www.poacherspocketpub.co.uk/

Armed with a Trekka pack we headed off firstly on the hunting ground walk. This walk is amass with nature and animals. The trekka pack offers the children the chance to learn about nature. Flowers, trees, animals, birds and there is even a bug hunt. Measuring the ancient tree`s to find out there age looking for signs of life and learning about wild flowers. It certainly keeps the children entertained Aaron helped both the children learn form the pack.
There is plenty to do at this castle and it has to be said it is one of my favourites. From exploring the grounds, castle, dungeons, immaculate gardens, to the quant coffee shop were you can retire for a relaxing coffee. Chirk Castel also offers an adventure playground for the children den building and play tractor area. There is also an outside cafe for us parents to chill whilst the kids play. Before leaving though the 2nd hand book shop is a must along with the National Trust shop itself.
