Garth village extends northwards from the A539 Llangollen to Wrexham road into the Ruabon mountains. Much developed in recent years the village is busy with locals and visitors en route to the nearby Panorama walk which forms part of Offa's Dyke path.

The local junior school, serving both Garth and Trevor, has one of the finest views from any school in Britain.

Its chapels have long since been converted to private dwellings but the church known as Trevor Church is still active. Nearby is Trevor Hall, once the home of a local business man, which is now a guest house.
