Gogerddan Wood is home to a stunning display of bluebells and other wildflowers in spring.
There are also some beautiful old trees here including oak, sweet chestnut and lime and these are clothed in an array of seasonal colours in autumn.
The circular walking trail starts from the car park and there is a small picnic site in a sheltered location by Nant Clarach stream.

The woodland gets its name from the nearby Plas Gogerddan (Gogerddan mansion), an old mansion owned by the Pryse family who were famous silver and lead mine owners.

The veteran trees and stunning spring flowers are the highlights on this pleasant walk with an amazing bluebell display in late spring.
It is a fairly short walk but has some steep climbs that are rewarded by views over the surrounding countryside.
The walking trail is waymarked from start to finish.
Look out for the information panel at the start of the trail.
