Moel Famau Country Park

3 miles (5.5 km)

Climb to the top of Moel Famau mountain on this circular walk through the stunning Moel Famau Country Park. The walk starts at the car park at Bwlch Penbarra and immediately picks up the Offa's Dyke Path to take you to the 1818ft peak. Part of the Clwydian Range the mountain peak proffers wonderful views of the Wirral, Merseyside, Snowdonia, the Dee Valley and the coast. At the summit you will also find the 19th century Jubilee Tower constructed in 1810 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of King George III. The climb from the car park is not too strenuous so would suit reasonably fit walkers. It also takes place on a good path. From the summit the trails then descend through the Clwyd Forest before returning you to the car park.
If you'd like to continue your walking in this beautiful area then you could visit the nearby Loggerheads Country Park. Located just a few miles to the east it contains dramatic limestone cliffs, wooded gorges and secluded grasslands next to the River Alyn.
Also of interest is the Iron Age Hillfort at Moel Arthur just to the north of the park.
Moel Famau is located near Mold in in Flintshire.
