I learnt to climb rocks here as a child. Plenty of places for kids to play hide and seek, red indians, chase dragons or learn about the wild flowers of the district. True, there is a quarry, but I never heard of anyone falling over the edge. As kids we peered over the edge with fascinated caution. The quarry is the car park - no cars beyond.
Apart from the wild life, the woods, meadows, views and the juvenile climbing, there are two sites of historic interest. At the summit, by the trig point, you can make out the earthwork of a miserable Dark Age fort run by some character called the Bear - hence the Welsh name Dinarth, fortress of the Bear. He lived in the sixth century and Gildas mentions him with execration; Gildas was a hard judge of local warlords. On the Llandrillo side of Bryn Euryn stands the ruin of a late mediaeval house - there is almost nothing left in Wales dating from before Owain Glyn Dwr's attempted war of liberation in 1400 to 1415. Llys Euryn has in the small firebacks what are thought to be the earliest bricks in Wales (not counting the Romans). Before the present house was built around 1450, there was a house here belonging to Ednyfed Fychan (c.1170 - 1246) who was Lord Seneschal to Llywelyn the Great, He had a reputation of being a cheerful host, with a wide variety of tales of foreign parts - he went to Jerusalem - a competent poet and a good player of the harp. As a diplomat he was esteemed as much by the English as the Welsh and dealt with treaties with foreign rulers. He had a coat of arms of tri pen sais - three Englishmens' heads - which he was given by Llywelyn the Great after a battle near Llandudno. His tombstone is in the nearby Llandrillo yn Rhos parish church. His descendants include the present royal family.

Brilliant day out, with friends, family, kids or alone! Plenty of places to sit with a picking or kick a ball around, lots to explore and wildlife.

This hill was a regular walk for me, long before it became a reserve. As a local, I knew many of the pathways by heart. However, I'm very glad it's become a reserve, as the plants and animals deserve to be respected.
The walk can take anywhere from half an hour to an hour, depending on fitness level, and stops to enjoy the views on the way up - and down! It's worth the time it takes and the rewards are incredible.
On the way up, you can explore an excavated medieval fort. At the summit, there are the remains of an ancient limestone hill fort.
360 degree views are breathtaking. Go.

a lovely walk with beautiful views of the little orme, conwy mountain and conwy valley. However if you have a dog beware of the ignorant thoughtless people that let their untrained dogs off leash without taking into account you may be scared of dogs or your own dog may be reactive when approached and do not know the difference between aggressive and reactive. It is literally "dog city" used by locals without any idea of what constitutes professional and acceptable/polite dog behaviour and who all think their dogs have rights to invade your and your dog's personal space. Such a pity as it is the only negative thing about this wood.

Well worth going off the beaten track, Bryn Euryn has it's own small car park and a choice of two way marked paths. One path skirts the outside of the hill, while the other ascends to the top. Both paths pass the ruins of the old hall of Llys Euryn which is quite extensive and must have been quite a sight in its heyday. If you like your history as well as the old hall the nature reserve is the site of an iron age hillfort and was a WW2 observation post. Views along both paths are stunning, and the views from the top of the hill are particularly spectacular out to sea, towards Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Rhyl and on a clear day even further! Also, look out for a glimpse of the Welsh Mountain Zoo!

You could happily go for a picnic, head there to spot some wildlife or just enjoy a lovely walk with amazing views, with or without the dog.

A great place to go with family and dogs (off lead also) and enjoy views from the summit of Bryn Euryn, towards the hills of Snowdonia or facig North east the coastline towards Rhyl and beyond - spectacular views. Llys Euryn a well preserved ruin with a good information board can be easily reached from the car park. One can proceed from Llys Euryn onto the path that goes around the base of Bryn Euryn - a steady walk and well used and easy to follow- and return to the car park. An excellent couple of hours in a natural environment. I go at least twice a week with my dog Oscar as my companion or witj friends and I'm a veteran OAP.

Lovely walk with views from all sides, not too far for people with walking difficulties. A little steep occasionally but well worth a visit. I've been to this area many times but never known it's here. Now we will visit more often. Highly recommend.

Every morning I walk round this hill with my dogs. It is an easy walk round, I am 81, along stone paths and grass banks over short grass areas and through woods. Going to the top is not too challenging if a little slippy on the grass descending, the views are great towards the mountains and coast. Well worth a visit

followed the accent trail with potential views which did not disappoint. Paths are marked but could do with more arrows. The paths were steep and narrow at times. Lots of wildlife.
The views from the top were just amazing of the whole of the coast from the little Orme to the Rainbow bridge. Also you could see the Conway estuary. Would be very muddy and slippery if wet

Great walk will be visiting again.

A great place for a nice easy walk through the woods, really worth going to the top for the fantastic views of the valley and sea.
