The walk uses the Prestatyn Walkway to leave the town, an easy walk along a gradually rising trail. The ascent to the ridge above Prestatyn is not over-strenuous and is well signposted along Offa's Dyke National Trail. The return half is through fields with a fairly gentle descent into the town.

A great walk with a nice gentle start through the golf course. The views are wonderful. A short diversion from WM5 to the summit of Graig Fawr is well worth while. The path at WM13 is difficult to find but if you go too far (as I did) you can easily join the next path left which is well signed. Once you get into the field go half left to WM14.

This is a lovely walk. Just a couple of places where we hesitated: At WP2 the 'wooden bridge going over a road' isn't the first one you come to (there's no way down to the left at this bridge but we still looked for it, thinking it was just overgrown!)- keep going to the next one. At WP5 the kissing gate and fence in the photo are sadly unrecognisable now - just two posts sticking out of the ground. The signposts at WP8 and 9 have been repaired. The distinctive tree at 17 has gone but the boulder is still there and the steps down quite easy to find. Very good carrot cake at the Dyserth Falls cafe on the way home.
