One of only 8 Protected Landscapes in Wales this 35km chain of heather clad hills and limestone cliffs form a spectacular gateway to North East Wales.

The short walk to the top of Moel Findeg is rewarded by some of the finest views in Denbighshire. Narrow winding path ways lead through delightful birch woodland and out on to open heath, a real haven for wildlife which nestles high above the village of Maeshafn. Views stretch out across the Alyn Valley to the familiar summit of Moel Famau with the distinctive Jubilee Tower perched on the top. To the east there are uninterrupted views across Flintshire which stretch out as far as Merseyside and the Cheshire Plane. The summit itself, known as the Bishops Chair is owned by a local farmer although a permissive footpath leads across this high point.

Moel Findeg is a site of hidden treasures. Once a hive of industrial activity evidence of old quarries and lead mines now lie hidden within the woodland and heathland.

Moel Findeg is a nature reserve and a home to many rare animals and plants. Visitors are asked to please keep their dogs on a lead especially during the nesting season as many bird species nest on the ground particularly on the heathland.
