Lying on a steep slope opposite Chirk castle, this wood is an important part of the local landscape. It is an Ancient semi-natural woodland and much of the area is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. There are a number of footpaths that run through the site. The site is quite steep in places and there are a number of wet areas and streams that criss-cross the site and can make the path boggy at times but this is more than compensated by the beautiful surroundings and views.
