ODP#18: busy, and don't get me started on litter louts and folk who believe in the dog poo fairies! But excellent views on a very windy but clear day - including Liverpool. Third highest trig on the ODP (highest on the northern section but Hay Bluff and North Daren on the southern section are higher). All s/holes and centre open, small crack at FB level, but otherwise good condition.

Gloriously sunny day for the walk up from the pub in Cilcain. Lovely direct and clear route with only a couple of boggy patches. Trig point itself being put to use as a picnic facility and rather dwarfed by the Jubilee Tower. It takes around 2 minutes to kick a small rugby ball from the trig, round the tower and back to the trig. Fab views.

Took a while to get to this one despite trying to park a little higher up the hill. It was very hot and this seemed to slow me down even further. All worth it for stunning views and an interesting monument at the top plus a Poke gym which kept Mr U2 amused for a while whilst I got my breath back!

Parked car at a dead end road and took a wee track across fields where one of us took a slip and a roll in the cow pats. Then onto the main track then another one going to the top. Loved the Interesting old tower at the top which has been greatly restored. Looks as if it's straight out of mordor. A favourite location for me. Cheers.

he highlight of the day, visiting the summit of Mothers bare hill. Opting for the easier blue route the going wasn't too bad, I was at the summit a lot sooner than I was expecting to be, which was handy as it would allow me to get something to eat, but, it turns out there wasn't a McD's up there, pity, I was looking forward to a Big Mac and fries. The views from the Mothers bare hill, even with the haze, were excellent and the view over to home, Ffynnon Garw, was truly unbelievable.

I have visited Moel Fammau on three previous occasions but this was the first time that I'd come specifically to see the trig. Today was an extra special day as this was my final Clwyd trig and thus completed the region of North Wales for me. A task I unwittingly set out on over two years ago with Great Ormes Head TP0174. I also did some filming and have put a clip up on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqlcmQOOYMw .

Good views today in spite of a lack of sunlight. The pillar is in good condition considering it's in such an easily accessible location. There is some cracking around the pillar at the top-of-FB level and some minor chips off the top but generally it's OK. The plug is missing. Traces of paint. Base exposed at grass level and there are a network of flat stones in the grass at the base of the pillar. Nice spot!

In good condition apart from missing plug. Lovely view point although at the time of the visit it was blowing a gale and lashing down with rain so it was something of a comfort to be quickly on our way off the top.

Haven't been up here in about 25 years! Came up in the dark tonight on a whim though and thought I'd bag the trig while here! Edit - Went back up in daylight and got another couple of photos.

Set out from our holiday cottage in Mold, on a very hot day without a cloud in the sky. A stiff exhausting climb up from Loggerheads, but we still went to walk 10.75 miles, handily found a pub later in day

Moel Famau A bit warm after the uphill walk to reach trig !!

amazing 360 scenery including snowdon/liverpool/runcorn/wrexham/ ruthin/denbigh and beyond, best viewpoint for other towns and mountains ive ever visited, also several paths to this height suiting all abilities,

mindblowing!!!! caroline and jen with our first ever trig point!!! and what a fantastic view around it, this has to be up in the top 10 views around britain for the clarity of 360 degrees, how many places can you see blackpool tower and snowdon in?©ramblingrosie

Not at highest point. Jubilee Tower is higher. Walking Offa's Dyke path between Bwlch Penbarras and Rhuallt. Icy head wind felt more like January than May.

My local Trig, 10 mins in the car from home. Today I made the ascent from Cilcain, much steeper and avoids the hoards in shell suits and high heels. Finished the days walk by heading along ODP to Moel Arthur and back to Cilcain. A much recommended walk. The Trig appears in pretty good condition (compared to many in this area) and is complete with OS GPS plates.
