start.

This is one of our series of “Long Sunday Walks”. These are often out of our area and ‘up in the hills’. This particular walk is at the harder end of the spectrum for these walks – although we have had at least one harder! This is a bit of an experiment to see whether we still have takers for walks like this.

Although it is ‘only’ just under 10 miles/15.8 km – you should be prepared for some 2100 ft/660 m of total ascent. For those familiar with Ramblers’ walk grading, this would be classified as a ‘hard’ walk. But it will be taken at a moderate pace – no-one will be left trailing.

The reward is a fantastically scenic walk through the Clwydian Hills with magnificent views and ascents of Foel Fenlli (hill fort) – optional – and Moel Famau (Jubilee Tower). At this time of year there could be a lot of botanical treats, as well as a good range of butterflies and bird life.

The venue is the main car park of Loggerheads Country Park (off the A494 between Mold and Ruthin). This is a pay car park so bring change – the latest information seems to be £5 for all day parking (4 hours won’t be enough).

There will be an (optional) meal after the walk – watch this space for further details.

Come and join us and support a new leader – how about leading another walk yourself?
