Walks in the Hidden Heart of North Wales

Twenty two walks in this revised third edition exploring the open moors and hills, valleys, lakes, woods and forests, of a little known, beautiful, unspoilt upland area lying between the Vale of Clwyd and the Snowdonia National Park. At its heart is a large undulating plateau of moorland and upland pasture - Mynydd Hiraethog, better known as Denbigh Moors - containing several large lakes, most notably Llyn Brenig, with its Visitor Centre. On its eastern side is Clocaenog Forest - an important habitat for red squirrels.


The walks range from a 2 1/2 mile archaeological trail to an exhilarating 10 1/2 mile moorland challenge linking 3 large lakes. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of a timeless landscape, occupied by man since earliest times, steeped in history and folklore. Visit Bronze Age burial sites, Iron-Age hillforts, a medieval castle site and ancient house.


Marvel at the panoramic views. Follow a network of old drovers’ routes, ancient highways, and former coaching roads. Enjoy the popular circuit of Llyn Brenig and the Alwen Trail. Visit scattered ancient communities, including Cerrigydrudion and the attractive estate village of Pentrefoelas, both lying on an important drovers route and the original 18th C London-Holyhead turnpike coach road.
