- From the A55 come off at junction 31 to take the A5151 signposted to Prestatyn and Dyserth. After 6 miles pass through the village of Dyserth to turn right at the lights towards Prestatyn on the B5119. At the bottom of the hill park in the Dyserth Waterfall car park on the right (free). Entrance to the waterfall and path is currently 50p (although this isn’t rigidly enforced at present). If this route is taken follow the path past the waterfall and up the steps between the medieval walls. Wooden steps lead down to a path junction. Turn right and follow the river on a good path to the left. An alternative route is to pass the waterfall shop to a public footpath sign immediately past it. Take this path up steps, past the site of an old mill and always trending left to a white cottage. Take the steps which run down the other side of the cottage to a concrete bridge. Cross the bridge and immediately follow the river upstream past an old boundary marker stone marked “Windsor” (a 19th century landowning family) to the crag. 10 minutes
