The North Wales Limestone Way is a newly-created 136km (85 mile) seven-stage route along the outcrop of the 340-330 million year old Carboniferous Limestone, from the iconic Great Orme in Llandudno along the north Wales coast and around the Vale of Clwyd, crossing the Clwydian Hills via a low pass to the limestone uplands of north-east Wales, to finish on the coast at Prestatyn.

Further Information:

The route starts and ends in popular Victorian seaside resorts, but in between moves inland to much quieter places. It covers a wealth of history and pre-history passing Stone Age cave dwellings, Bronze Age copper mines, Iron Age hillforts, Roman ruins, Norman castles and walled towns, historic houses and remnants of the industrial past through to modern Wales with offshore wind farms and oil/gas platforms.

Coastal and inland scenery is stunning with nature reserves and their specialised floras widespread. The limestone gives good walking, usually dry underfoot, with a scattering of limestone villages; drystone walls often defining the fields, and woodlands carpeted with spring flowers.
