This walk combines the popular and delightful Leete Path walk with a visit to the village of Cilcain and the White Horse Inn. As the River Alyn drops below the level of the leete, fine views of Moel Famau and other parts of the Clwydian Hills open up to your left. A long traverse on a bridleway across the flanks of Moel Famau gives open views to the east before the descent to the River Alyn and the Leete Path.

Completed this walk on the 29/05/2016,myself my partner and 7 month old American bull dog {Daisie} Arrived at loggerheads country park a touch late so parking was limited in car park there is a fee to pay.As you drive into loggerheads about 100 yards before your turn there is free parking but is very limited as well. The walk itself is a very pleasant hike ,the route guide is spot on and very easy to follow.The views of the welsh countryside are outstanding.The free range eggs were purchased at waypoint 14 as described in guide.If your taking your pooch there are certain points on the hike they will have to be leashed,but for 75% of it my pup was off exploring.By the end we had covered just over 8 miles according to my fitbit. I would recommend this walk and we will be doing this again soon.

Great walk. Takes with a brisk walk about 2.5 hours. Point to note: There is a stretch at Waypoint 12 which is 30 metres of ankle to shin deep mud. I have been here in November and March and its exactly the same. Its also in the shade so I don't expect a dramatic change in the summer so gaiters would help, if you have them. Thanks for the route!

Excellent directions thank you. A decent walk though not as good as walk 680 by the same author. Main niggle was 75% of the walk is in the shade which, on a crisp cloudless Autumn day is not the best. Mind you the free range eggs at Waymark 14 are excellent so make sure you take a pound with you.
