Mynydd Hiraethog, Mountains Cerrigydrudion, Denbighshire - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Cerrigydrudion Denbighshire Wales
Mynydd Hiraethog (Welsh: Mountain of Longing) is an extensive rolling moorland landscape comprising the central and western part of the Denbigh Moors situated between the major river valleys of the Clwyd and Conwy in North Wales. It includes several hills including Mwdwl Eithin 470m, Bryn Trillyn 496m, Craig Bron-Banog 501m and Cefn Du 422m. It also includes the large reservoirs of Llyn Brenig and Llyn Alwen and to the east the Clocaenog Forest which has one of Wales' last populations of red squirrels.| Perhaps due to its isolated location the Mynydd Hiraethog area has become ever more popular for its mountain bike trails, a varied and rugged mountain biking experience, that includes twisting forest roads, lake side tracks and exposed moorland bridleways. There is a rich variety of wildlife and stunning views of Snowdonia to the West, and the Clwydian Hills to the East. And perhaps due to its isolation and desolate landscape the moors have been the source of myths and legends down through the ages. Sadly today the Moel Maelogan wind farm has been constructed on its western edge, overlooking the beautiful Conwy Valley. Lets hope the spirits of the beings who trod these ancient lands will haunt to the grave those who have tried to destroy this wild and beautiful landscape. Please , please, put the wind farms out at sea!
