Description:

The Clwydian Range, which includes Loggerheads and Moel Famau Country Parks managed by Denbighshire Countryside Service, has been a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1985. In 2011 the AONB was extended to include the Dee Valley. The chain of hills with its impressive Iron Age hillforts offers great walking opportunities with panoramic views. My first guidebook provides circular walks linked to the Offas Dyke Path, generally covering the western side of the Range. This second volume explores its many 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. Formed millions of years ago when North Wales was covered by a tropical sea, and, later tilted by major earth movements, the exposed limestone escarpments, pavements, and outcrops, provide stunning contrasting scenery to the lush green hills and valleys, and offer delightful walking.
