Parked on roadside on Llanasa road above Trelanwyd. Pleasant stroll through woods to the breathtaking tumulus. Stunning views on a hot and hazy day yet nobody about.Jake99408/04/2017
From the village car park on High Street, Trelawnyd. We did some caving in the limestone caves underneath the summit so take a head torch. Views from the massive cairn were fantastic and we spotted the pagan shrine in the woods too. Wind at the top was really strong. With Mart & Daisy.John Eley26/02/2017

As per maktengrove - amazing steep sided conical tumulus appears as you break out of wood on nice path from east not marked on map. Went on to Bryn yr odyn .Mark Sims23/01/2017
I really liked this hill. A walk through the woods not expecting much from a T2 but it is a big moound with great views in all directions. Apparently it is Neolithic and is the second largest man-made mound in Britain (after Silbury Hill).clivevilla02/01/2017

Finally done after looking at it from my home town for 20 years or so! splendid views from Wirral to Anglesey. Cave requires bending down to get in. Mound is impressive, wonder what the natural height is?mattcymru13/04/2015
Parked in the village car park in Trelawnyd (SJ 09076 79825). Took lane north, then Clwydian Way to edge of wood. Then permissive path to the summit on the neolithic mound - second largest in Britain after Silbury Hill. Dropped down afterwards to visit the burial cave on southern flank of the hill. Walk continued on to Bryn-yr-odyn ....Man of Kernow111/03/2014
Climbed after walking through Trelawnyd. I took the road to Llanasa and then the Clwydian way that goes by one of the corners, i took the permissive path to the summit. Lovely walk to the summit and the views are great towards the quarried side of Y Foel and Graig Fawr. Interestingly my gps only only recorded a height of 231 m.Dazingdale26/10/2013
