Offa's Dyke Part 4: Penycloddiau and Moel Arthur
6 people attending
14 places left
This is the fourth in a series of day walks along the Offa's Dyke Path - the idea is to eventually walk from the North Wales Coast to the border with England in stages, taking in some beautiful scenery en-route.
This particular walk starts in the village of Bodfari and heads south towards Penycloddiau and Moel Arthur, both home to ancient hillforts. We'll follow the Offa's Dyke Path to the summit of Penycloddiau before dropping down and immediately ascending the summit of Moel Arthur. Turning back on ourselves, we'll follow a path along the ridge of hills, with expansive views over the Vale of Clywd, before re-joining the Offa's Dyke Path for our journey back to Bodfari.
In total, the walk is about 11 miles. It is more challenging than previous sections of the Offa's Dyke series and has several steep ascents and descents. A good level of fitness will be required.
