About this walk

From the car park you will see a small path on your right leading from a wider track. The smaller path heads up through a wooded area. Follow this path (it is relatively steep toward the end) where it then flattens out and you are rewarded with views across the south of the vale of clwyd. Carry on along this path alongside the fence that is on your right. You will come to a stile (it has access for dogs) and you then will see a clear path and way markers to the summit of Penycloddiau which is marked my a large cairn. There can be sheep out in the highland so it is advisable to keep dogs on leads.

Once you've taken in the views the length of the vale and on a clear day the dramatic skyline of Snowdon in the distance carry on along the path which sees you hesding toward the television mast. This takes you down to a hardcore path, go left and follow the path which now skirts below Penycloddiau. You will then reach some woodland. Here there are two diverging paths. Take the path to your left through a small gate. This path sits below the path you started off from and leads you back to the car park.

    Glorious place to walk. Car park can get busy. Views are spectacular once you get up to the top of the hills.

From Denbigh head for the village of Llandyrnog which is signposted from the Denbigh bypass roundabout. On the approach to the village of Llandyrnog you will come to a small roundabout and straight in front of you is the Kinmel Arms pub. Head for the pub and follow the road until you come to a crossroads. At the crossroads turn left for Llangwyfan. Continue to follow the road where it will become slightly narrower and there is a steep hill. Once at the top of the hill you will see a car park on your left. The Penycloddiau walk starts from here.
