Clocaenog is a huge conifer forest which is the size of 10,000 rugby pitches (100km2).
It lies at the southern end of Hiraethog Moor and was first planted in the 1930s by the Forestry Commission.
Although still a working forest, it is now a place for people to enjoy and home for a wide variety of wildlife.
Red squirrels live in Clocaenog Forest but you will be very lucky to see one as they move over large areas and are quite secretive.
Rare black grouse, known for their flamboyant courtship display, known as ‘lekking’, live on the forest edge.
