Penycoddiau & Moel Arthur Walk Easter 2022


Off message - During Easter Gill and I went to North Wales to see my Mum and our family. We went on some wonderful walks

This 7.5 mile circular orange walk "Penycoddiau & Moel Arthur" from our ancient (make sure you buy the modern version) "North Wales, Snowden and Offa's Dyke" Pathfinder guide was fantastic. 

As a young boy we use to go for family sledging down the steep slopes of Moel Arthur in winter and later on, as a teenager I would walk and wild camp along these Clwydian Hills with friends, when I was in the ATC (Air Force cadets) practicing for Duke of Edinburgh awards expeditions. 

There are two fairly steep climbs near the start and then near the end but the rest of the walk is along ridgetops and fairly level trackways with glorious views first of the Wirral then the Vale of Clwyd. 

Check out the wild hill forts, the spring blossom and the peace and quiet. 

The bottom picture of the collage is mine and the top suggested by Google. Not sure which one I prefer? Both lovely. You can see other photos from this walk here on my Facebook page
