Nant Mill and Bersham Waterfall

2 miles (3.2 km)

This walk follows a section of the Clywedog Trail from Nant Mill to Bersham near Wrexham.
It's a lovely area with a country park, woodland trails, a riverside path along the Afon Clywedog and a pretty waterfall to see.
You can start the walk at the visitor centre and car park at Nant Mill. From here you can pick up the waymarked footpath heading east to the waterfall and then to Bersham Bridge. On the way you'll pass through Plas Power Woods where you can look out for a variety of woodland birds.
You can extend your outing by heading north into the village of Coedpoeth or south to the Ty Mawr Reservoir. Erddig Hall and Country Park is located just to the east of Bersham and well worth a visit.
