A Few Facts About Moel Hebog

Location -
Moel Hebog (Welsh for Bare Hill of the Hawk) is a mountain in Snowdonia which dominates the view west from the village of Beddgelert. It gives name to a whole range of peaks in the north-western corner of Snowdonia, which include the Nantlle Ridge and Mynydd Mawr. From that side, Moel Hebog has a rocky face with a distinctive pointed summit, although from other sides, it appears more rounded. The exposed rock means that it is often visited by students of geology. It is often climbed from Beddgelert and it can be combined with the nearby mountains of Moel yr Ogof and Moel Lefn for a longer walk. This route, however, does involve some easy scrambling. The view of Moel Hebog and Llyn Gwynant from the north near Snowdon is one of the most photographed in Snowdonia.

Summit -
The summit of Moel Hebog has a triangulation point and a cairn with a pile of stones. Moel Hebog stands at 783 metres (2,569 feet).
