Today a marinading walk in the Clwydian Hills starting at the Loggerhead Country Park in Denbighshire (post code CH7 5LH).
The park provides a excellent hub for many walks, with it dramatic Limestone outcrop providing a backdrop and nestled in beautiful wooded valley and the River Alyn following by.
Today we followed one of my KITTIWAKE books which is MORE WALKS IN THE CLWYDIAN RANGE and OS map 265, following our walk titled South of Loggerheads.
Well maintained waymarkers lead the way through fields to hidden and abandoned mine workings to explore, following the river Alyn through a stunning wooded gorge and elevating our way up a hill with the expanse of the Clwydian hills and Moel Famau with its ruined tower crowning its summit into view.
The route leads us to a Big Covert which is a wooded hill with a bridleway leading sue through the this mixed woodland, providing some time in the wood to photograph mushrooms which is good fun seeking them out.
We pass a hidden cave in the wood as we head towards Maeshafn and for a short distance along a peaceful lane and finally a long section of a bridleway and finally to finish at the Tearoom at Loggerhead Country Park for a big pot of Tea and Tea cakes.
