Loggerheads - Ffrith - Moel Famau - Bwlch Penbarras - Loggerheads

This walk starts from the popular Loggerheads Country Park and follows a relatively little-used bridleway around the base of Moel Famau, the highest summit in the Clwydian range. The Jubilee Tower on the top is a superb viewpoint, even the English Lake District being visible in clear winter conditions.

The descent is on the more popular side following a stretch of Offa's Dyke National Trail, before quiet lanes and field-paths lead back to the country park.

In regards to the previous comment by Phil and Sue Eptlett the leet is always on the right. The river is on the left. Jim.

Excellent walk even though we did take the short cut mentioned at wp 9 because it was a very hot day. The views from the Jubilee Tower were good although it was hazy in the far distance. They must be stunning in clear conditions although we could just make out Snowdon through the haze. At wp 3 the leat is on the left not right as stated. Also the car parking for all day is now £5. Good day out.

Completed this walk on the 14/05/2017 with my partner and our dog. The walk took us just over 5 hours in perfect weather conditions.The directions are very easy to follow and for a days hiking with everything thrown in we would highly recommend this walk. Parts of the hike are tiring but easily done especially the climb up Moel Famu. Our dog had to be leashed on a good majority of our time due to lambing season but it did not spoil this brill hike. Thanks for a great days hiking

Did this walk on 28/05/16. Great directions and easy to follow. The views at the top are well worth the climb. a great walk that we will be doing again.

My wife and I did this walk on Saturday 9th June 2012. We were staying at Bryn Bowlio which is a favourite caravan site of ours and it was a short walk to the Loggerheads starting point from there. As we were expecting rain, I didn't print out the map or guide but I relied on the GPS waypoints alone and these were excellent and accurate. This has now become one of our favourites so thank you, Jim!

Easter Sunday. Excellent walk, despite cloud obscuring the view from the Jubilee Tower. Suggestion that at waymark 23, ignore this stile and continue along lane a little further to bridge over river and take sile on left signposted Loggerheads via Cascade Woods. Path follows the riverbank to another signpost (waymark 24) where you turn right crossing the river by bridge and then climbing quite steeply up field to stile. Turn left along lane and at a bend take path on left (again signposted Loggerheads. This will bring you to the main A494 road opposite the entrance to country park and car park - and so avoids having to walk along busy road. Parking still £3.

Charge is now £3 for more than 4 hours so not too bad.

21/02/09 - Completed this fantastic walk today. The authors pictures / directions describe the walk perfectly but do not do the fantastic views on show justice!! At Waypoint 18 a new slate grey path has been laid alongside the road mentioned. No stile to cross, just go to left of car park and ignore the forestry track off to the left. Alternative route is to park at waypoint 19 (£1 a day) and do the walk backwards. This eases the cost of parking and difficulties in getting a spot!. Our compliments to the Author.. best walk for ages!
