Dyserth Waterfall Walk
This pretty village in Denbighshire is a popular place for a walk. With waterfalls, woodland, hill climbs and a railway path to the coast there's plenty of options for stretching your legs. Three long distance waymarked trails also pass through the area so there's plenty of scope for extending your walking into the surrounding hills and countryside.
This short circular walk takes you around the lovely Dyserth Waterfalls. It's a very pretty area with 70ft high falls, caves, streams and woodland trails.
You can start the walk from the car park on Waterfall Road with a postcode of LL18 6ET for your sat navs. You can then follow footpaths around the falls, the surrounding woodland and along the River Ffyddion. Near the falls you can also visit St Briget's Church where you'll find a Grade II listed building with a notable Jesse Window dating from the 16th century.
You can easily extend the walk by picking up the circular Prestatyn Walk. This will take you to the neighbouring seaside town along the Dyserth to Prestatyn Walkway which runs along a disused railway line between the two settlements.
