2 dogs allowed

We begin the walk in the Loggerheads Country Park car park (payment £5 all day). Following the River Alyn, we walk along the river path until reaching a foot bridge across. In wet weather, the steps descending to the bridge can be slippy so waking boots are needed although there is a handrail.

Continuing along the river for a further 2 km reaching the bridge over the Alyn near Hesp Alyn and taking the attractive country lane towards Cilcain. After a short uphill pull, we join a footpath traversing fields and woods until rejoining a road below Cilcain.

We follow quiet country lanes back to Loggerheads country park for the return journey.
