Great walk, just me and sheep. Climbed from Bodfari. Headed for trig point and then climbed fence to cairn. Great views - no one around . Good day then back down to BodfariBryan194516/11/2016
Me and my partner climbed this hill with the dog, after arriving in Wales with the rest of my family for our summer holiday (coinciding with the Geocaching MEGA event in LLangollen). We felt unwelcome at points on the walk but most of it was very enjoyable with lovely views! Better signposting from the main road from Bodfari would be useful as we were sure we were going the wrong way. Luckily a friendly farmer helped us out :) This was part of my training for climbing the three national peaks at some point in the future!satan hardens01/08/2016
Circular walk from Bodfari. Beautifully warm early summer day, but too hazy for any great views. Hopped over the barbed wire to visit the trig. Pint in the Downing Arms at Bodfari afterwards.Lazylizzie07/05/2016
From the car park at the foot of Moel Arthur. Moel Arthur, Penycloddiau and Moel Y Parc. Cold, wet and generally pretty miserable!!AlunRees3129/03/2016

Up mast track from easy parking at end of road up from Afon Wen. No track found above mast so went to left of compound and had to rescue sheep with its head stuck in wire fence- good job I was passing.Mark Sims19/02/2016

Great windy run from Moel Famau to Moel Y Parc. Summit and trig are a good bit from one another. Trig located in field to right. Fantastic views.Chris92011/01/2015
Continuation of walk from Penycloddiau. Walked back by Clwydian Way. With MP and JK on a hill survey walk.marktrengove16/12/2014
Continuation of walk from Penycloddiau. Took Offa's Dyke path NNW to bwlch, then up by permissive path and then access land to the top. The trig point is situated in pasture over barbed wire fence, not on access land. Stunning views on clear evening to Lakeland Fells, Isle of Man and Snowdonia from the cairn. Returned to bwlch and took Clwydian Way south and forest track back to car park on bwlch between Penycloddiau and Moel Arthur.marktrengove21/05/2014
Climbed to cairn via signposted path off Offas dyke en-route to accommodation in Afon-wen. I Couldnt see how to get to trig point as it lay beyond the wire fence so i climbed over. This hill has two faces. The cairn side is beautiful and atmospheric whereas the highest point lies in a grassy Area dominated by the transmitter.Dazingdale27/10/2013

Not sure if the trig at SJ 11947 69991 is the top. There is a cairn at SJ 11790 70081 which might be higher but it is a tumulus.DARRENG24/11/2012
