Moel Famau stands at 555 m (1,821 ft) and is the highest point in the county of Flintshire. It is located within the Clwydian Range, a series of hills that run from Llandegla to Prestatyn. The hill is classed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is surrounded by several Iron Age hillforts.
Numerous footpaths can be used to reach the summit, all with varying difficulties. Two of the more popular routes can be made from the car park between Moel Famau and Foel Fenlli. The Jubilee Tower sits at the summit. Although never completed due to a lack of funds, officials initially ordered the construction of the tower to commemorate the golden jubilee of George III in 1810.
