Coed Nercwys is located in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) near Mold.
Coed Nercwys is one of several woodlands with waymarked trails in the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
On first sight, it is an unremarkable conifer woodland but as you follow the trail round you will come across some of the historical remains which show how people once lived and worked here.
The woodland also provides an excellent habitat for wildlife – look out for birds such as buzzards, gold crest and coal tits.
The small lake known as Llyn Ochin has dried up but this marshy area now attracts dragonflies and newts, and plants like cotton grass thrive here.
There is a slate plaque near the car park entrance which commemorates the Millennium Oak Trees that were planted here by the local community.
