Our family walks follow routes that are chosen to offer a leisurely stroll for families with younger children who want to explore the countryside. While we endeavor to choose paths that don’t provide too much of a challenge we must let you know that the routes for this weekend are not pushchair friendly. We also have not been able to help ourselves in wanting to share some of our most spectacular landscapes while believing that no one is too young to reach some of the best views with a little encouragement. So, while we are in this magical landscape this route does have a few ascents that we will take at a comfortable pace for all.

We will be leaving Clwyd Forest park taking paths that skirt some of the lower levels of the Clwydian hills, passing through woodland and crossing rivers until we reach the section of the Offas Dyke Path that climbs to the top of Moel Famau.
