JOIN US ON OUR MOEL FAMAU WALK; days out.
THE Clwydian Range offers some of the best easy walking for all ages in North Wales - clearly marked and safe footpaths, convenient access and car parks, a good range of nearby facilities and superb panoramic views. Next Saturday, July 7, a very special walk is taking place to celebrate the coming of this year's National Eisteddfod to Mold: a mass walk to the summit of Moel Famau.
Organisers are hoping at least 700 people will make this walk which will be led by champion charity walker David Snowdon-Jones - 77 this year. Walkers are advised to start from Cilcain (2 miles and 90 minutes to the summit) and from Pen Barras (followbrown signs to Moel Famau from the main Mold-Ruthin road) where there are three car parks, free on the day (1 1/2 miles and 50 minutes to the summit.
There will also be a free park-and-ride service from Mold County Hall to Pen Barras.
Guided walks from Pen Barras start at 10am, to have everyone on top at the Jubilee Tower by 11am, where there will be 1,000-plus free light refreshments provided by Chris Roberts of Diskos and Rhys Williams of Mold Smwddi Bar. But take your own refreshments in case demand exceed supplies! Dress sensibly in case of poor weather, with proper outdoor shoes.
Guides, monitors and first aiders will be on the walk, which will depart the summit at around noon after an hour of singing led by Holywell Town Band.
