    This stage continues through the hills on a journey that affords awe-inspiring views and history.

    From Llandegla, the trail climbs steadily through the landscape as it changes from green fields to rugged upland terrain.

    The trail passes the summits of Moel Y Gelli, Moel Y Plas, Moel Llanfair, Moel Gyw, and eventually reaches Foel Fenlli.

    The second highest peak of the Clwydian Range, Foel Fenlli affords fantastic views into Wales and England. On the summit you can also explore the remains of an Iron Age hillfort.

    A short time later, you reach the highest summit in the range, Moel Famau. From this summit, you experience spectacular views across the Vale of Clwyd to Snowdonia in the west, and the English border in the east.

    Crowning the summit is the Grade II-listed remains of Jubilee Tower, which was built to commemorate the golden jubilee of George III in 1810.

    It is a long and undulating descent to Bodfari, where this stage finishes. There is not much in Bodfari but there are options for accommodation and food and drink nearby.
