Behind its seaside facade, Prestatyn is a Victorian town with some very agreeable buildings. The walk starts with a climb to the hills at the back of the resort and passes over Gop Hill, an ancient burial site, before dropping to the old village of Trelawnyd. Some tree-lined bridleways lead to the disused railway from Dyserth, now converted to a footpath and cycle track, back to the heart of Prestatyn.
