Out of Town Walks


From time to time, we will publish details of special or out-of-town walks on this page. 

We will also post notices on our Facebook page to advise that extra walks have been arranged.

Nercwys Forest Monday 18th September.

Hello everyone,

This is a reminder of a joint event between Friends of the Clwydian Range and Walkabout Flintshire' (part of Let's Walk Cymru). I will be leading a walk of around 4.5 miles with a few inclines and a few stiles to one of my favourite local places, Bryn Alyn.

We will meet at the northern car park of the Nercwys Forest, ready to walk at  - 2:00pm on Monday, 18th September 2017  - grid reference , SJ 217 593.

One way of getting there is to turn south off the A494, Mold to Ruthin road, at the top of the Gwernymynydd hill onto the Glyndwr Road. Pass the Owain Glyndwr pub, turning left then right, then at the next cross roads keep on to Cae Newydd Road. Pass Cae Newydd Farm, CH7 4AY, then take first right for the car park. It’s about 2..25 miles from the A494 turn off to the car park.

We will cross the northern end of Nercwys Forest to fields and onto Bryn Alyn. After the clints and grykes of our Limestone Pavement we will return via the village of Eryrys and into the southern part of Nercwys Forest.

Feel free to pass the details to anyone who may be interested.

Best regards,

Wednesday 30th August Rhewl Denbighshire.
Starting from The Drovers Arms at Rhewl at 10.30

This is a gentle walk of just under 5 miles and will follow Lady Bagots Drive along the banks of the Cleweddog River towards Bontuchal. 
We will turn right up through Coed Nant and continue into Coed Orllwyn. The first part of the walk is along a surfaced track whilst the second part will be a woodland path with some exposed roots and 3 stiles.

There is one stretch with a climb but this should not prove too much of a problem.

Dogs are welcome providing they bring along a well behaved owner/minder.

Please meet for registration from 10.00 am in the car park of the Drovers Arms in Rhewl. This is on the right hand side of the A525 from Rhuthun to Denbigh. Post code is LL15 2UD.

Please note that food is served at The Drovers from 12.00 (noon) to 3.00pm.
