Moel Famau, Mold

Moel Famau
This has got to be one of North Wales best hill walks. The hill and surrounding country park is located in an area of natural beauty. The views from the Jubilee Tower at the peak are well worth the climb up. The walk is suitable for all age groups with a decent level of fitness.

My children started walking it when they were just three! Best place to start head out of Mold on the A494 pass through Loggerheads and you will see it signposted.

Sitting atop the Moel Famau Country Park peak, you will see the location of the Jubilee Tower, which was built to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of George III in 1810. Conceptualised by Thomas Harrison of Chester, it was designed like an Egyptian Obelisk with three tiers; the tower however was never completed due to a lack of funds. In 1862 a storm brought down the incomplete tower, and most of the rubble was removed and reused locally. This site however still offers impressive views and adds some history to this amazing country park
