From Loggerheads Country Park (SJ 19776 62606) - Moel Famau - Moel Dywyll - Moel Llys-y-coed - Moel Plas-yw - Moel Arthur. Return via Cilcain & Devil's Gorge (Leete Path) back to start.david23020113/11/2016
Climbed first today, before continuing on to Moel Famaur. We headed up the steep grassy path, made it to the cairn and enjoyed the views despite the win. We then went down the more moderate hill and back on to the Offa's Dyke Path, to Moel Famaur. Lovely walk, if tiring! Counts towards my training for the three peaks in the future!satan hardens03/08/2016

3rd hill of the day. Straightforward short walk from the bwlch. Followed ODP around shoulder and out of the wind. Then up a decent path through the ramparts to the crazy as hell windy summit. Small untidy cairn.. huge views even on a drab day like today.stig_nest24/01/2016

Climbed from Offas dyke trail. It sure was a steep climb up and the view of Moel Arthur from the next hill looks very impressive. It is such a dominating hill and the day i climbed it it was bathed in glorious autumnal sunshine.Dazingdale28/10/2013

From the car park on the penycloddiau side. Decided to leave my waterproofs in the car while I nipped up and back. The rain took the opportunity to remind me; NEVER leave your waterproofs in the car!! It hammered it down on the summit, I was drenched within minutes....hillhiker28/10/2012
