About

This prominent woodland that stretches across the slopes above and behind the town of Colwyn Bay is easily accessible from the coastal cycle route, North Wales Mountain Zoo and Porth Eirias.

The wood is almost entirely deciduous with a variety of native trees and exotic species such as sweet chestnut and firs. Impressive mature beech, oak and chestnut trees impart character to the woodland whilst two streams provide an attractive feature as they forge their way through deep dingles in the ancient part of the wood.

Birds to be seen and heard include jay, buzzard, nuthatch, great spotted woodpecker, treecreeper and tawny owl.

King’s Drive and Llanrwst Road divide this 21 hectare woodland into three parts.

Access points to the middle part of the woodland have interpretation panels and these help to explain its recent history, some of the trees, fungi and wildlife to be found as well as illustrating a number of way-marked circular trails to follow.
