Towering hillsides on Offa's Dyke Path

Trefonen Hillwalk

24 May 2019

digwyddiad cerdded

The walk is in a very scenic area and takes in Gyrn Moelfre – this is the actual hill used in the Hugh Grant film, “The Englishman who went up a hill and came down a mountain”. 

For hill-baggers, Gyrn Moelfre is categorised as a ‘Marilyn’ - Marilyns are hills of any height with a drop of 150 metres (nearly 500 feet) or more on all sides, so it is a hill which is relatively high compared to its surroundings. The Marilyns are so called, by the list's compiler Alan Dawson, after the more famous mountain list - the Munros. 

On the edge of the Berwyn Mountains, Gyrn Moelfre is a little over 500m in height, so not overly challenging - standard walking gear is all that is required.  Bring a camera though, there are really great views, especially looking over towards Snowdonia.

The walk is very enjoyable; it is extremely well-organised and quite a few participants have done it many times – this will be the 18th time for me.

The walk begins in Trefonen (SY10 9BF) -  a comfortable 45 minute drive from Chester and 30 minutes from Shrewsbury. . . so please, no excuses.
