A really nice countryside walk in Denbighshire. Starting at the Chapel in Betws Gwerfil Goch and walking the lane to Melin Y Wig, then walking alongside the river Clwyd in the wooded valley floor, before returning to Melin Y Wig to then take the other side of the valley back to Bertws GG. Walk includes lanes, wooded paths and open fields, with great vsitas.

A lovely horseshoe walk in the Vale of Clwyd. Flat and easy with great views of the vale and the Clwydian range, can be boggy near the end depending upon the recent weather, today it was dry. Starting out at Brookhouse Mill, following country lanes and footpaths for the first third, and then walking along the Afon CLwyd for the bulk of the walk.

A circular walk in the Clocaenog forest, easy going along forest tracks, with a section of lane and road at the end. There is a small car park at the start of the walk. We hoped to find Bryn Beddau stone circle, but did not find it (we will have to try again!), we did find the Cairn that is on the OS maps. A nice forest walk.

A really nice little walk with stunning views of the Dee Valley, and Snowdonia in the distance and the Berwyns. Parking near Carrog then ascending up the hill on clearly defined paths for about 1.5 miles, you reach the slate mines. Many old slate buildings and metal workings still present. Traveling around then you will see two cave entrances, one with graffiti on the wall saying ‘Enter The Dragon’ – you need good torches for this bit as there is a warren of tunnels underground (not mapped on the GPX as no signal inside) – enter the mines and explore at your own risk. These caves are sometimes referred to as The Dragons Breathe – as the air inside is warm! We walked back down on a slightly different route for variation.
