Gors Lydan, Warren Hill and Tylcau Hill from The Pound.rhalstead22/03/2020
Beware of the angry farmer at Little Moelfre farm. He claims the between the byway coming off the hill and the public road is private.Rob Rees15/11/2019
From SO116760 on the track N of MoelfreJim.Fothergill23/08/2019
Clockwise circuit of Gors Lydan, Ty'n-y-ddol Hill, Warren Hill and Tylcau Hill from Wakefield Green Farm. A lovely sunny day. Broached the access issue at Little Moelfre with a couple of locals and got the impression that this is known problem with county council and may possibly relate to a planning cock-up and/or appropriation by landowner. Either way, other walkers have apparently been refused use of the driveway.milimana03/07/2019
Last Dewey of five starting from the Lay by outside Llangunllo station, route also took in Pool hill, Beacon hill, Stanky hill and Warren hill, 19.5 miles in just under seven hours.WAYNE ROWLETT07/07/2018
A steady walk views for miles.granddadscott03/06/2018
First top of a clockwise circuit of 4 Deweys N. of the B4356. Parked on large area of hardstanding just E. of Wakefield Green Farm at136745 – Up road to cattle grid & a ‘No RoW’ sign by entrance to Little Moelfre – Nipped over gate into access land & followed byway (now a cul-de-sac!) to summit tumulus. Continued to Warren Hill. (S)gerrybowes25/07/2017
Parked S of tel box at Moelfre City and walked up BOAT to get to summit; to return to road, followed track on N side of Moelfre Hill above attractive cwm. One of several enjoyable rough pasture hills in area, in which Beacon Hill is the highest. Fine views, today from Cader Idris to the Carmarthen Fan. Open access, but there are evident problems with locked gates and no ROW sign that didn't discourage us from using the lane up to Little Moelfre, which leads to the BOAT. There have clearly been problems with petrolheads and trailbikers and their antisocial behaviour needs to be prevented but it appears that walkers are being discouraged, while it seems impossible for equestrians, to gain access from Moelfre Citypwheeler29/04/2017
Another fine top in this wonderful area.Alex C25/03/2017
A perfect sunny day in excellent company (Steve and Alex). Parked at Ty'n-y-Rhos, bridleway to Rhydhir, then direct to Pool Hill (friendly farmer). Beacon Hill, Stanky Hill, Cefn Pawl, then down to Llanrhys. Short road bash then Warren Hill and Gors Lydan. Short heather bash to track and road, then via Newhouse Farm to Tylcau Hill. 21 km, 840 m and wonderfully easy going makes an easily do-able roundGill25/03/2017

Indifferent little hill, but quite a nice walk doing 3476 on the way.
