Started from Pen Barras car park, fine sunny day, climbed up main path with directional arrows. Superb views of Moel Famau and Clwydd range. Could see the Berwyn mountains through the haze. Well preserved remains of a hill fort on the summit.giant_hiker19/04/2019

6.1 mile walk from Coed Moel Famau car park, followed good path through woods onto Moel Famau (2nd time, bagged in 2006), then followed big ridge path down to Moel Penbarra (25m prominence), down to Bwlch Penbarra, climbed up steeply onto Foel Fenlli and then south to Moel Eithinen, followed Offas Dyke path back north contouring Foel Fenlli back to bwlch and followed road to car park. Then drove round to our second walk of the day (Moel Gyw and co). Changeable weather; from cloud to showers to sun, few people about, amazing views to Snowdonia and over to Liverpool.DanTrig25/08/2018

A jog along in the mist and drizzle from the expensive carpark on the collShutterlag28/10/2016
The no. 76 bus from Llanbedr to Llangwyfan allows a fabulous linear walk taking in 4 Marilyns: Penycloddiau, Moel Famau, Foel Fenlli and Moel Gyw. Mainly easy going on the Offa's Dyke path, with a few steep deviations onto the summits. Penycloddiau can be accessed via a steep, faint path off the Clywdian Way above Fron-gelyn, just past a massive iron tank. (The paths marked on the OS map do not exist). The direct route up and over Foel Fenlli is steep but very easy.Gill14/10/2016
Straightforward from top of passtrimarc212/07/2016
Nice to be back. Best way up from the car park is through the gate at the back, zigzag through the woods, then a stile and steep path with steps to the hill fort, and round to the left to the top.jenx25/06/2016

From cp at Bwlch Penbarras (free at this time of year) straight uphill from rear of car park. Steep and slippery in places but some very fine steps aswell. Down the far side and along ODP to foot of Moel Eithinen. Summit reached across sheep pastures. Searched summit and nearby alterative but no sign of RHW`s cairn. No views as awful weather and low cloud.mart079720/02/2016

From Clwyd gate. Along the ODP which soon became a peaceful walk once away from the road. The pull up Foel Fenlli is pretty sharp but is fairly short. Cairned top with good all round views despite todays haze. Returned along ridge to Gyrn.stig_nest04/11/2015
