Very straightforward level walk up West bank of River Clwyd and return along East bank, could make a day of it and do my walk Rhuddlan Castle and Dyserth Falls, with, say, lunch in the Dyserth village pub, or, picnic on the picnic area of the falls. Twitchers: take your binoculars, there are plenty of birds to see on the river marshes on the way up and down.
