The North Wales Path long distance walk runs close to the North Wales coast between Bangor in the west and Prestatyn in the east. The path runs along parts of the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It was devised, implemented and maintained by the then Countryside Council for Wales. It is now maintained by Natural Resources Wales and three councils: Gwynedd, Conwy, and Denbighshire. From Bangor, places visited on the path to its finish in Prestatyn include Aber Falls, Garreg Fawr, Moelfre, Conwy Mountain, Conwy, Llandudno, Great Orme, Colwyn Bay, Abergele and Rhyl. At Prestatyn the North Wales Path connects with Offa's Dyke National Trail.
