Pillar in good condition with replacement cement cap. Immediate area clear but trees and impressive Monument blocking rays. Easy walk up, 500m ish, from small car park.

Parked in the parking area to the north of the trig and took the short pleasant walk up the forest track. Great views and an interesting monument at the top.

Easy enough walk up a forest track with only the last 250m being steep. Nice monument at the top as well. Lovely blaeberries to munch on!

Took the track from the entry further along road from car park. A bird making a very strange squawking as we walked up the tracks. Lovely monument close to the trig. Took some time to eat the berries. Cheers.

Weather-wise, I may not have picked the best day to visit this pillar, but regardless, the views were still splendid. Parking couldn't be better, there is a car park just five hundred yards down from the pillar and there is a good path that takes you through part of the forest and right up to the pillar and monument. So, in actual fact, is was a good choice for today, long journey though, round trip was just over one hundred miles.

Due to the weather it was a toss-up between two Pillars, Clocaenog won. The Trig point was nice and straightforward to visit. The walk up though the forest was very enjoyable and once at the summit, even with all the clouds, the views were excellent.

caching in the area so went for this as well. Pillar overshadowed by a monument. Pillar in good condition but limited views due to forest and low cloud cover.

Came up on a long hike in the area after passing through Gwyddelwern and Bettws Gwerfil Goch. Unfortunately didn't see any red squirrels in the forest. There were some nice views over to Moel Famau. I ended up dossing for the night in a nearby bird hide.

Says on the board...excellent views from the monument....mmmmn not today..well could see trees twenty metres away but not sure if thats what they meant! Easy walk up from parking spot. Takes 3 times as long to drive to these places than to do the walk once you arrive! Pillar next to monument that gives info regarding the planting of the forest.Pillar is good condition.

On forest covered hill, with very difficult road access. Attempt from south failed. Eventually managed to drive to a small parking area due north of pillar along numerous single track roads. Pillar next to a WW1 memorial. Stone plug, good condition, public

Yes, quite an amazing memorial about 15 yards to the West. A really colourful near view of heather, gorse and rowan. There is a concrete plug replacement. The East sighthole is open, the rest closed. The base isn't visible and the pillar is quite squat in the grass. There are only slight traces of paint. The views in the eastern semicircle are really good, but the woods obscure the rest. Again, on a day as wonderful as today, this is a great spot!

Bagged my first "unknown" TP!. Trig located next to memorial commemorating the planting of Clocaenog Forest in 1930. Trig is bare but seems to have been painted at sometime in the past and in good order except for some small grafitti on the top (dated 1941!)
