RIDE DETAILS:  This is a beautiful ride with stunning views everywhere you look.  Using B roads and unadopted single lane tracks you will climb steadily, using bridlepaths until you arrive at Llandymog.  From here you will weave through the forest bridlepaths and have magnificent views of Cilcain and Loggerheads Country Park, on a clear day you can see Snowdonia, The Conwy Mountains and the sea.  Leaving the forest you will travel across the face of the mountains on a byway before turning off to to follow the Clwydian Way,  steadily climbing to Moel y Parc before returning back to the venue.

NOTES: Part of the route is rocky and stony and I suggest barefoot horses wear boots.  There is also a water crossing.
