CLWYDIAN WAY (4) - LOGGERHEADS to PEN-Y-STRYT

WALK A - 10.5 miles

From Loggerheads we follow the Clwydian Way as it starts its gradual ascent towards Bryn Alyn. We walk through the forest of Coed y Fedw and nature reserve to the village of Maeshafn. Our route passes the extensive quarrying at Burley Hill to Pant-du, here the B walk joins.

WALK B - 8 miles)

Starts close to the town of Llanferres and crosses the River Alun and then follows a lovely green lane through a valley shaded by trees to meet a forest track that will take us up to Pant-du.

The A & B WALKS now continue along the Clwydian Way below the summit of Bryn Alyn. The path twists and turns past old mine workings to the lead-mining community of Eryrys. From here we pass another huge limestone quarry; the landscape now changes to a mixture of woodlands and farmlands as we pass Allt Gymbyd farm on route to the former hotel at Bod Idris. We descend into the valley and cross it to Pen-y-Bryn and then to the village at Llandegla, through the village to end our walk at the Pen-y-stryt crossroad.
