Moel Famau and Loggerheads Country Park gearing up for busy bank holiday weekend
A council, in conjunction with the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB, is gearing up for an influx of visitors this weekend to Moel Famau, Loggerheads Country Park, Horseshoe Falls, and Llangollen.
Denbighshire County Council encourages visitors to the county’s rural attractions to prepare for the August Bank Holiday.
“Visitors should check in advance if facilities are available. If possible, they should opt for quieter sites and trails. This approach helps sidestep the rush and parking woes,” suggests the council spokesperson.
“It’s crucial that visitors cherish our countryside. This implies not leaving rubbish, parking considerately, and cycling only where it’s allowed.”
Proactive steps have been taken at Moel Famau and Horseshoe Falls to minimise congestion.
Motorists are urged to park thoughtfully. Those who don’t might face a fixed penalty as parking monitors will be on duty during the bank holiday.
Given a dry forecast for the weekend, individuals are cautioned against using BBQs, camping stoves, or kindling fires on the AONB’s moorlands due to potential fire hazards.
Dog owners are advised to be responsible: pets should be leashed, especially near livestock, given the ongoing lambing season.

In relation to Horseshoe Falls, visitors coming in on a Saturday can park in Llangollen and use the Dee Valley Picturesque Bus service – https://www.clwydianrangeanddeevalleyaonb.org.uk/projects/the-picturesque-bus/
Visitors as well are reminded that they can use Llangollen Railway to disembark at Berwyn Station to visit the falls from either Llangollen or Corwen.
