Ascent Trip ReportParked in the car park at SJ 138668 (beware of the potholes at the entrance). A fine hike north along the edge of the woods before breaking out on the crest of the Clwydian Hills (following Offa's Dyke Path). A stunning Bronze Age hillfort, very atmospheric in the moody winter light. The summit is a restored cairn atop a walled mound with fine views in all directions; the coast to the north, Liverpool Anglican Cathedral to the east, Moel Fammau to the south and the Vale of Clwyd and Snowdonia to the west.
