An Easter Stroll Up Moel Famau

On Easter Sunday we took a trip over the border into North Wales. Our destination was the hill Moel Famau, just past Mold on the A494. It seemed to be a pretty popular place to visit, quite understandably because it's a reasonably gentle walk with great views over Snowdonia, the Irish Sea and the Liverpool Bay.

You can see our route below, the way up was along part of Offa's Dyke and is a broad, easy-to-follow path that's never particularly steep. The first part of the way down, however, was quite a bit steeper (although never mountainous) but there is an alternate route for that top section - simple to find on the way up, and I assume it links up with the Offa's Dyke trail; there was certainly a route off from the Offa's Dyke path that looked like it would link up.
