Eglwyseg is the name of a valley, river and mountain to the north east of Llangollen in Denbighshire, North Wales, UK. The area is best known for the prominent limestone escarpment, Creigiau Eglwyseg or Eglwyseg Rocks, which runs north�south for around 4.5 miles. The high point of the area is at 511 m on Eglwyseg Mountain. Various parts of the escarpment have specific names; from north to south, these include World's End (or Craig-y-Forwen), Craig Arthur, Pinfold, Dinbren and Trevor Rocks.

The entire valley has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Landscape of Special Historic Interest. The upland moors have several Bronze Age burial mounds. Historically, the crags have been quarried for limestone, and there are also several disused lead mines. The land use is currently a mixture of heather moorland managed for grouse, improved sheep pasture and conifer plantation.

Offa's Dyke Path passes through the area, and Eglwyseg is also popular with rock climbers, with around 800 routes, both sport and traditional.
