Coed Moel Famau

Coed Moel Famau

There’s something totally unique about being stood at the top of a mountain.

It’s an experience that never fails to leave you filled in silent wonder, awe-struck and mesmerised.

The world sweeps away below you and it almost feels like you could hold up your hand and touch the sky.

Beauty wherever you turn

Standing as the highest summit in the Clwydian Range, Moel Famau might not be classified as a mountain, but it still delivers everything you’d expect from one.

But really classifications are almost irrelevant here because when you reach the top the only thing on your mind is pure amazement.

Head up the Jubilee Tower Circular trail and you’ll soon discover the northeast of Wales like never before.

The Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) surrounds Moel Famau, everywhere you look shades of green - from vibrant grasses to dark treetops fill the entire land.

Off in the west, it’s impossible to miss the mountains of Snowdonia silhouetted against the sky, and look just to the right and you’ll spot the Irish Sea stretching towards the horizon.

Your reward at the top of the summit?

Just lift your head up and stare into the distance and that soon becomes obvious.

But you’ll also find the fascinating ruins of the Jubilee Tower - built in honour of King George III to celebrate his 50 years on the throne.

Learning has never been so fun

You’ll also find trails at Moel Famau that cater to all adventurers.

There’s a short, wheelchair-accessible trail that runs alongside a stream, and Larches Loop is perfect if you’re after a nice easy stroll.

Just be sure to dress according to the weather and nothing will be able to stop your day out.

If you’re bringing the kids be sure to pick up a leaflet at the car park and head out on the Forest Tracker Trail.

You’ll be provided with information about the animals who live at Moel Famau and your day of adventure can also be a fun and interactive learning experience for the kids.

Park up and get exploring

Bring along £2 and the car park is yours for the whole day, or even buy a parking permit for the whole year, because this trip is definitely not going to be your last.
