Moel y Parc cairn
Shunned by walkers on the Offa's Dyke Long Distance Footpath, Moel y Parc is the northernmost summit of this long section of ridge. The cairn seen here is on the spot marked as a tumulus on the map, so I presume that the green grassy mound is ancient, though the cairn itself looks modern. The path seen on the left heads down to the southwest to cross a well-defined bridleway at a minor col, and either direction at this junction will take one back to the Offa's Dyle and Clwydian Way routes as they head down into the Wheeler valley.
