Details

Coed Llangwyfan Forest rises very steeply from the stream at its base and up on to the summit slopes of the Clwydian Hill near Penycloddiau.

There are three walks that start from here; two go to hillforts and all three offer great views.

There is also a bridleway that runs through the woodland which is popular with horse riders and cyclists.

The Offa's Dyke long distance path passes across the top of Coed Llangwyfan Woodland.
