Moel Famau, Hill of the Mothers, is a hill in Denbighshire North Wales. It is popular with walkers, indeed the Offa's Dyke Path passes close to the summit of Moel Famau. There are a number of walks and mountain bike trails on the slopes of Moel Famau and the surrounding Clwyd range of hills. The town of Ruthin in Denbighshire and the village of Cilcain in Flintshire are both popular start points for the walks and mountain bike trails. The Park is an important part of the Clwydian Range AONB. The heather provides food and shelter for wildlife, such as grouse, stonechat and curlew. The rather ugly remains of the Jubilee Tower are at the highest point of Moel Famau at 554m, 1818ft. It was built to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of George III. The Park covers an area over 2000 acres and is managed by Denbighshire Countryside Service. The service improves the heather moorland, drystone walls and access paths and provides information and facilities for visitors. Come the autumn, when the heather turns purple, Moel Famau and the Clwyd hills are a site to behold.
