More Walks on the Clwydian Range

More Walks on the Clwydian Range

by: David Berry
The Clwydian Range is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which includes Loggerheads and Moel Famau Country Parks. The chain of hills with its impressive Iron Age hillforts offers great walking opportunities with panoramic views. Enjoy open hills, attractive woodland and valleys, stunning limestone scenery, old miners-paths and superb views. Visit hillforts, lead-mining relics, country parks, ancient villages, nature reserves and old country inns.

This book, a compliment to the first volume 'Walks on the Clwydian Range' explores other beautiful parts and less well-known paths. In particular, it covers in depth the large area of carboniferous limestone, which forms a significant part of the Range. The exposed limestone pavements and outcrops provide stunning contrasting scenery to the lush green hills and valleys, and offer delightful walking.

The 23 routes range from a two-mile woodland trail to an exhilarating eight-mile upland walk incorporating two stunning hillforts. Many routes contain shorter walk options, and some individual walks can be linked with others to provide longer more challenging day walks if required. Each walk has an overview summary and start location information. Detailed route finding instructions include a sketch map.
