Another Route to the summit of the Clwydian Range and the Jubilee Tower that could easily be coupled with this or this walk for a tougher challenge. Or any of our other Clwydian Routes. It follows the Offa’s Dyke path for a fair distance and the ascent is initially easy. Be warned though, that you lose the height and end up a having to end the walk with a climb back up to the car park!!!
