Cross main road from Village Centre right then immediate left into. Heol y Wern. At “T” junction, right then left down Tros-y-Wern Farm lane. 70 yards to a stile concealed
in hedge on right.
Over stile, follow then straight on up slight hill to an obvious stile/gate at field boundary.
Over stile, turn left and follow field boundary for 100 yards to another concealed stile across a stream in corner of field. (This part can be very muddy).
Over stile trending right past three successive hedge edges. Then across final field to stile and join tarmac road between two houses.
Once you have regained the tarmac, right will take you downhill to Mold, otherwise turn left to start the steady climb up the hill locally called Weary Willy. Left at fork to continue the slog uphill.
Eventually road flattens out to a pleasant walk past Plas Hafod with good views to left over the Dee and Liverpool.
Just before the steep descent, an ancient wooded path is signposted between two houses on left giving a more interesting route back to rejoin the farm track you left at. Then retrace back through the housing estate to the Village Centre.
Alternatively stay on the road and descend downhill back to the A494. Village Centre is to your left.
