One of only 8 Protected Landscapes in Wales this 35km chain of heather clad hills and limestone cliffs form a spectacular gateway to North East Wales.The Clwydian Range forms a 35km north – south chain of undulating hills extending to 160 and rising to 554 metres at the summit of Moel Famau in the centre of the area. The hills stretch from the Vale of Clwyd in the west to the foothills of the Dee Estuary to the east; from Prestatyn Hillside in the north to the Nant y Garth pass in the South.Seen at its best from the Vale of Clwyd, the open heather moorland of the high ridge dominates the small hedged fields and coppice woodland of the lower slopesIn places, limestone rock outcrops are exposed in attractive wooded escarpments and on the fringes of the area, highly fertile farmland gives a soft pastoral foreground to the hills. The Offa’s Dyke National Trail follows almost the entire length of the ridge crest.
