So I thought I best get my little picture gallery up from our weekend trip to the top of Moel Famau. Although this time around I spent more time filming and playing around with video.
So let’s start with an introduction. Moel Famau is the highest hill in the Clwydian Range and is classed as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Standing at over 500 metres it’s certainly a good starting point if you want to get your kids into walking, hiking or climbing. There are several trail routes leading to the summit and we always tend to go in the middle or on ocassion go on the hard route from the Southern car parks.
The trip to the top offers amazing scenery, views for days and a crazy variation of weather patterns the higher you get.
Once you reach the summit and the Jubilee Tower though, you are in for a treat. You can look out over North Wales in the distance or you can watch over the Wirral Peninsula, Cheshire and on really clear days see even further.
This trip was the first time we’d all made it too the top for a few years. We were also quickly reminded of how much fun it is and the kids now have their hearts set on Snowdon so you know. Big expectations from these two!
We were also quite lucky as the day we chose had good weather forecast. We had clear blue skies and a little wind to contend with which was fantastic considering the weather can be unpredictable the higher you climb.
Plus at the bottom there are toilets, a picnic area and an adventure playground for the kids if they aren’t knackered out by the climb to the top.
It took us 52 minutes to reach the top with the kids constantly stopping for water and cookies. And maybe me too. And it took half that to get back down as you know, it’s easier!
It costs £1 for parking if you park in the normal car park, which is nothing considering the fun you’ll have exploring, the amazing views at the top and the fresh air you’ll breathe.
I also wanted to talk to you a little about the new MultiPower protein bars that I was kindly sent.
MultiPower founded in 1977, initially creating pure protein they soon began adding vitamins and minerals to offer something further. Fast forward to today and they are one of Europe’s leading sports food producers and have created at 27 gram protein bar within their extensive product range.
A range of convenient and great tasting protein bars to provide a variety of options tailored to your goal and to fit around your training and lifestyle. High quality nutrition in a convenient and tasty package.
My favourite one and the one that I made sure I had on my adventure was the new 53% protein bar, boasting a white chocolate coating which isn’t something I’ve come across all too often it’s a great way to keep me snacked up on a climb, walk or run.
They’re also low sugar and support muscle development and lean definition when training. I also had the chance to try the chocolate alternative which was equally as good, plus their range is great value for money too.
I also put together a short video of the Moel Famau trip and views which you can find on our YouTube channel. You’ll have to excuse it though as I’m still new to video editing and working out the best way for me to film things.
Have you visited Moel Famau yet?
