Walks And Walking – Winter Walks Across The Clwydian Range
Walks And Walking – Winter Walks Across The Clwydian Range In North East Wales
The Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a perfect place for a winter weekend walk for groups and families alike. This unmistakable chain of summits, many clad in purple heather moorland, are topped with Britain’s most dramatically situated Iron Age hill forts. Right at the centre of the Range is Loggerheads Country Park, where you can check out the amazing views on the circular Cliff Top Trail. A 1 ½ mile stroll along the River Alyn, through rich woodland and across limestone cliffs – it’s perfect for all ages and abilities.
The Clwydian Range and Dee Valley is the scenic gateway of North Wales, embracing some of the UK’s most wonderful landscapes. The Clwydian Range is an unmistakable chain of summits, topped by Britain’s most dramatically situated hillforts. Beyond the windswept Horseshoe Pass, over Llantysilio mountain, lies the glorious Dee Valley with the historic towns of Llangollen and Corwen, rich in cultural and industrial heritage.
The Clwydian Range forms part of the Offa’s Dyke National Trail which is a long-distance footpath along the Wales–England border. Opened in 1971, it is one of the best British National Trails and draws walkers from throughout the world. Much of the 283-kilometre (176 mile) route either follows, or keeps close company with, the remnants of Offa’s Dyke, an 8th-century made border. It passes through, or close to, the towns of Chepstow, Monmouth, Abergavenny, Hay-on-Wye, Kington, Knighton, Montgomery and then in and around the North Wales towns and villages of Llangollen, Llandegla, Clwyd Gate, Bodfari and Dyserth.

That does look like a very grand place and not an area I would have immediately thought of to visit. Thanks for the inspiration & a Happy New Year!
Thanks Paul 🙂
Together with the Berwyn Mountains, the Clwydian range offers a huge area for walkers of all abilities and tastes. The AONB itself now cover nearly 400 square kilometers. There are 24 peaks over 600m in the Berwyns. We often go for a days walk and never see a sole up there, Bliss!
