Then the Clwyd meanders northwards through the fertile Clwyd valley to St Asaph, where it is joined by the River Elwy, its main tributary.
At the confluence of the Elwy and the Clwyd, the river becomes tidal before meeting the Irish Sea at Rhyl.

The Afon Aled flows from the moorland reservoirs of Llyn Aled and Llyn Aled Isaf. It is the main tributary of the River Elwy. Once the upper river frees itself from a deep gorge it is similar in topography to the Elwy.
