Hope Mountain

Low Level Walks

Hope Mountain, like that other northeast Wales hill, Halkyn Mountain, may well overplay its physical attributes, particularly to those who associate the word mountain with larger scale peaks. It is, nonetheless, a dominant feature in the landscape and one that attracts its fair share of visitors.

The little upland country park of Waun-y-Llyn, situated just north west of Hope Mountain proper, is the main focal point for most pilgrims. Here you will find an old sandstone quarry, sometimes frequented by climbers, and in keeping with the Welsh name, a small lake. This is a splendid place to while away some time, contemplating life and soaking up the fantastic views of the surrounding landscape, and on a clear day, far beyond.
More extensive circular walks around Hope Mountain can easily be sought out; a loop from the Waun-y-Llyn car park leads south to Ffrith then back north through wooded slopes, passing old quarries, an old lime kiln and running along a pleasant tree-lined bridleway. On the way you will be treated to some very fine viewpoints.


The Waun-y-Llyn Country Park has its own car park


A combination of narrow roads, footpaths and bridleways.
