Walking: There are plenty of routes with scenic and historical interest for the casual or serious walker. Tree Tops overlooks Hope Mountain, which is 400 feet higher at 1000 feet from the country park at the top you can see beyond the Cheshire Plain to the East and the Clwydian range with Moel Fammau, its peak, to the West. A comfortable walk would be from Tree Tops through the edge of Llanfynydd up the slope of the Mountain, along the country park and down calling at the Try Thy craft centre on the way back. The road through the village of Llanfynydd was built on top of Offa's Dyke, which can be reached by road or public footpath. Evidence of the accommodation site for the border guards can be seen opposite Tree Tops (there is only the earth banking left but with a little imagination you can visualise a wooden surround with a roof on it). We have evidence of an even earlier civilisation at Tree Tops i.e. Stone Age. For a longer walk a good one would be up over the hill to the South of Tree Tops and into the Nant y Ffrith valley.
Horse riding: At Rhydtalog approx 3 miles West of Tree Tops is a pony trekking centre, which uses the Llandegla, moors and Llanarmon yn Ial hills as trekking ground. For the beginner lessons are available at a riding school 3 miles away in Pontblyddyn on the edge of Mold.
Golf: There are approximately 15 golf courses in a range of 15 miles, please ask for telephone numbers to check on green fees.
Bird watching: Tree Tops is a haven for birds and birdwatchers as there is unspoilt woodland to attract them over 100 species have been recorded. The kingfishers and the dippers love the fishery and the river, a hide for bird watching and studying the entomology is planned (dragon flies abound in late summer).
