Limited parking at SJ079768. No RoWs, permissive access. Multiple confusing MTB tx in spite of no-bikes-signs.Isbjorn22/06/2024

Dyserth, Gop Hill bike tracks up to summit, on over Marian Ffrith and Y-Foel.Flatfield11/03/2024
Parking area to the east of the hill. Footpath then numerous options of tracks to the summit. Popular with dog walkers and mountain bikers. No access issues. Solo.Dangerous Dave01/02/2024
Starting point was the beginning of the Prestatyn - Dyserth Way. In hindsight I would have made the journey a lot shorter as there was a lot of farmland to cover. Mynydd y Cwm itself was full of mountain bikers and entirely tedious. In hindsight I'd have bagged this at pace rather than making a day of it.flynn07/01/2024
Plenty of parking at SJ080768 where the track leads off the road. This seems to be a popular are for dog walkers. Easy paths to the top through the woodland. Very enjoyable easy hill. The memorial cairn near the summit is a beautiful spot. First of 4 Marilyns today.KevPalmer28/09/2023

Parked to East, then same route as Dan to memorial cairn and HP.PeterD12/08/2022
Parked east of hill and followed forest track to where footpath comes from north. From there headed south on track and picked up good little path that headed all the way through woods to top. No views on summit. Returned same way. Eventhough this is marked as private land on OS maps it does seem to have a country park feel to it. 66m ascent. High cloud. Afterwards we drove to and bagged Gop Hill and Y Foel.DanTrig11/06/2022
Up track from the east. From the branch track junction towards the summit there has been extensive recent felling which is currently being cleared making progress somewhat tortuous. Summit area still has woodland.vuirich24/03/2022
Parked by the crossroads to the west and waled up path through woods. Nice memorial at summit.Stevooo27/02/2022
1/2 Parked at pub in Cwm then Mynydd y Cwm from the North West using a few tracks in the woods, then cut back down to join the Offa's Dyke path over to Y Foel which has a permissive easy path up to the ridge from the East side, leaving the Offa's Dyke near the farm.nickywood131/10/2021

Plenty of parking down narrow lane. Start on main track and take branch track (not the first one as that heads away from summit). No view at summit but there is a memorial to a plane that crashed into the hillside in 1947.giant_hiker03/08/2020
