3/3 Llangollen is a challenge as every one of its hills requires a bit of planning and understanding, and are each their own endeavour. This was a fine Hill, as if God just plopped it there.tumpawumpa06/04/2019

Called velvet hill for a reason- short cropped soft grass. Several summits on delightful ridge with views of autumnal woods along the river, ruined abbey and interlocking hills. Elisegs pillar to east worth visitingDenise 13/11/2018
Layby N. of hotel at SJ 19870 43330 - Up to junction & then up steps & through wood to stile - Over stile, turned left & alongside fence up to ridge - Good path along ridge to summit knoll. (S)gerrybowes13/11/2018
From the S, didn't find the path so steeply up through the crispy frongs of dead bracken and scattered birch with pale golden leaves bright in the morning sun. Join path on grassy ridge, As AJ arrive on S Top convinced it was high point until at N summit! Bowling green grass/moss and superb views. Slithering all over the place today should have worn better boots.RichardM13/11/2018
From busy parking area to S of hill, kayakers, dog walkers, cyclists and one bagger. Into wood, soon over stile then left 100m, track to top. First summit looked as high on arrival, not so when on N summit.Aye Jimmy14/01/2018
10.1 mile walk from car park near Berwyn Station, walked along minor road to Rhewl then climbed up good path near Cymmo Farm across fern slopes onto Graig-Ddu (for first time) then climbed obvious steep tracks onto Moel Morfydd, Moel.Y.Gaer and Moel.Y.Gamelin (bagged these 3 previously in 2010) and along little trails through ferns onto Maesyrychen Mountains (first time) and followed paths back to road near Llantysilio farm, turned left along more minor road and across field paths to Coed Hyrddyn (first time) along this nice little hill back to car park, overcast with brief bursts of sun, then drove home just beating the bank holiday rush.DanTrig25/08/2017

A planned day off from the 'OFF'as Dyke trail. I started from the Abbey grange hotel and climbed up Castell Dinas bran, Dropped back into Llangollen and then took road and path on the South side of the vale , walking over the Dee at Berwyn. I then explored the Horseshoe falls and Llantysilio church before backtracking to the Chainbridge hotel, as somewhere on this stretch I had dropped my ordnance survey map! I never found it. Light was fading but i noticed the National trust signs and just waded up the slopes of Velvet Hill aka Coed Hryddyn. At the top I walked the ridge all the way to the end and dropped down onto the road that profiles the hill and from here i made it to the Abbey Grange hotel's grounds. I have now (Oct 2013) made it back to Llangollen to continue with the Offas dyke and I have walked both the Dee valley and North Berwym way and this little hill really stands out!Dazingdale28/03/2013
