The River Cegidog is a river in Flintshire and Denbighshire, mostly flowing through the former, but towards the end of its course forming the border between the counties.

Its source lies in the hills of southernmost part of the main body of Flintshire to the east of Rhydtalog village. It flows in a roughly north-easterly direction before turning south-east through the villages of Llanfynydd and Ffrith where the Nant-y-Ffrith border stream flows into it. It then takes up the county border and heads north-east through a wooded valley before joining the River Alyn at Cefn-y-bedd.

The name of the river indicates a place where hemlock grows.[1]
