From ponderosa with Sazz and Col. Nice steady walk with the odd steep little bit, nothing too bad! Great views of Moel FamauLaura.W19/05/2019
First hill today, started in layby opposite the Ponderosa Café, crossed main road and walked left along the road to gate. Stay on main track, a bit steep in a few places. Nice views at first summit. Carry on along the track to take a side path to Sir Watkins Tower, the ruin remains of an 18th century folly tower. Again nice views of the Dee Estuary and Cheshire in the distance.giant_hiker06/05/2019

Pleasant walk from the Ponderosa, where I have not visited since I was a child. Stunning views. Visited both tops, including the trig and the heather covered cairn. Nice peaceful place, Ponderosa was busy and indeed full of bikers. Gift shop is actually quite sweet.tumpawumpa01/09/2018

From WSW, hard track up from the Ponderosa. An easy nut rather boring walk up a rather boring hill, but a likely superb viewpoint on a clearer day.Topographer5711/05/2018
