Alwen Reservoir, near Denbigh
Walk or cycle around this huge upland reservoir
Scenic viewpoint with a picnic area and short woodland stroll
The picnic area at Boncyn Foel Bach is set around the car park and has views south and east over the hills.
This car park is the starting point for a short walk in Clocaenog Forest.
It sets off through an avenue of tall beech trees which pop with colour in spring when their fresh leaves are a lurid green.
In autumn the leaves turn orange before creating a colourful carpet underfoot - great fun for children to crunch through!
The trail is waymarked and starts from the car park.
