Today’s Walks

Strenuous Leader: Jackie Gudgeon     Distance: 11 miles

After escaping from the streets of Prestatyn we follow Offa’s Dyke Path up onto the Prestatyn Hillside Nature Reserve with fantastic views over the sea, before descending to Bryniau. Then across fields to Marian Mill and on to Marian Ffrith, the highest point of the walk at 240 metres. Although a modest hill in North Wales terms, this eminence affords us (weather permitting) wide ranging views over the surrounding countryside and out to sea. We will then circle round, mainly on quiet lanes, to Dyserth to view the famous waterfall, before joining the North Wales Path back to Prestatyn. Not a great height gain, but ups and downs.

Moderate Leader:

No Leader for a Moderate Walk today unfortunately.

Leisurely Leader: Sue Daniels     Distance: 7 miles

From the bus station we join the North Wales Path which has good views part way along looking over Liverpool Bay and surrounding area. We amble along this path for approx. 2 miles then leave the path and visit the waterfall at Dyserth (probably have lunch here). After leaving Dyserth we join the Clwydian Way for a short while before taking the Offa’s Dyke Path homeward bound. We will walk about 3 miles of its actual 177 miles (it runs from Prestatyn to Sedbury Cliffs near Chepstow).

Easy Leader: Sue Beeley     Distance : 4.5 miles

During our walk today we will walk along the Prestatyn-Dyserth Way, stopping at the waterfall for lunch. It is a surfaced path along the old railway line. This disused railway was used to transport mining and quarry products from 1869 until the mid 20th century. The walk will mainly be flat, however there is one hill (sorry about this).
