Foel Penolau is a top of Moel Ysgyfarnogod in Snowdonia, North Wales and is the northernmost summit of the Rhinogydd. It overlooks Llyn Trawsfynydd, and from the summit it is possible to see the towns of Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog.
The top is reputed to be one of the most rocky defended summits in Snowdonia, where hands must be used to attain the summit. The summit is on a large smooth slab of rock which is the surface of the outcrop which the top is made up of.
