Trails and walks in Denbighshire

With miles upon miles of rolling fields and lush green valleys to explore, as well as the Clwydian Range and the coastal dunes, Denbighshire is home to some of the best and most varied walks in North Wales. With our Rhyl caravan parks located in a prime position within the county there are plenty of great trails and walks to try while you are staying with us. Walking on the Dee Valley Way near Corwen in Denbighshire and our Rhyl caravan parksOffa’s Dyke Path National Trail The Offa’s Dyke Path follows the border between Wales and England for 177 miles, and makes for an epic adventure if you are looking to discover more of Wales. In Denbighshire it takes in a number of spectacular sights. Beginning from the coast by Prestatyn, they join and follow the length of the Clywdian Range, before crossing the Llandegla and Ruabon Moors and dropping down into the Dee Valley. Dee Valley Way The Dee Valley Way is an excellent trail to follow if you are looking for a good full day of walking. It spans for fifteen miles between Corwen and Llangollen, and you can walk the trail in either direction. Beginning from Llangollen, the path winds up over the hills on the north side of the River Dee, making its way through some of the hidden yet beautiful parts of the valley until Corwen. If you’re not feeling up to walking the full fifteen miles, the path is also split into five smaller sections. North Berwyn Way The North Berwyn Way is another 15-mile-long trail, yet it is considerably more challenging than the Dee Valley Way. This route also connects Corwen to Llangollen, but instead takes a far more difficult course through the wild Berwyn mountains south of the River Dee. Brenig Way The Brenig Way is a longer route, spanning 32 miles between Corwen and Llyn Brenig, a tranquil lake which is also the location of a Bronze Age burial site. Passing through natural woodlands and steep sided river valleys, the Brenig Way also makes its way through the Clocaenog Forest and includes a quiet climb along the Afon Clywedog. The route has been designed to be walked in two or three days, and is a perfect trail to include on a walking holiday in North Wales. Image: Andrew, available under Creative Commons 2.0
