6.3 mile walk from road south of Moel Y Gelli, followed Offas Dyke onto hill, then trails onto Moel Y Plas summit, continued along Offas Dyke path around Moel Llanfair then onto Moel Gyw, then headed back south over Moel Llanfair (had to climb barbed wire fence on descent), back over Moel Y Plas along road, onto footpath then across field to Moel Y Waun summit, descended back to car same way. This was the second walk today, earlier re-bagged Moel Famau and bagged Foel Fenlli and Moel Eithinen, changeable weather; cloud to showers to sun, not many people around, great views to Snowdonia, Liverpool and even the Pennines.DanTrig25/08/2018
