About Clwydian Way

The Clwydian Way is a 122 mile Circular Long Distance Footpath, created to celebrate the Millennium, it takes the walker through some of North Wales' finest countryside. The classic route starts and ends in the traditional seaside resort of Prestatyn, which is well served by bus and rail connections. The route uses public rights of way and is trailmarked with a distinctive white disc featuring the Buzzard.

As well as the beautiful countryside the walker is taken to the historic towns of Ruthin, Llangollen, Corwen, Denbigh, St. Asaph and Rhuddlan.
>From the hills of the Clwydian Range to the Vale of Clwyd and Mynydd Hiraethog the area is a haven for wildlife. This is home to many bird species and in particular Ravens, Red and Black Grouse and of course Buzzards. These birds of prey have made a comeback in the area and can be seen soaring high in the sky. Foxes, Otters and, at dusk, Badgers can sometimes be observed in their natural habitat.

An alternative moorland route over the Mynydd Hiraethog and through Llansannan has spectacular views of the mountains of Snowdonia.
