Summary: The Clwydian Way is a long distance walk in North Wales which is mainly within the County of Denbighshire though it does have parts of the way in the neighbouring regions of Conwy and Flintshire. It was developed as a Millennium project by David Hollett of the Ramblers. Being a circular walk it can be started anywhere though associated guidebooks show the walk starting in the coastal town of Prestatyn. From here the Clwydian Way goes via Trelawnyd, Rhuallt, Tremeirchion, Bodfari, Llangwyfan, Moel Famau, Cilcain, Loggerheads Country Park, Maeshafn, Eryrys, Llandegla, Llangollen, Rhewl, Llantysilio Mountain, Carrog, Afon Dee Valley, Corwen, Bettws Gwerfil Goch, Afon Alwen, Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, Llyn Brenig, Llyn Aled, Aled Isaf, Llansannan, Bryn Rhyd-yr-Arian, Henllan, Denbigh, Dyffryn Clwyd, St Asaph, Dyserth and Meliden. In general the first half of the walk concentrates on the Clwydian Hills and while the return half has some hilly sections too it also explores the rich lowlands.
