Rhinog Fawr and Gloyw Lyn make a perfact combination for this Snowdonia walk from Cwm Bychan. The summit of Rhinog Fawr offers great views over the Rhinogs and over much of Snowdonia. Arguably one of the great walks in Wales, good route finding skills are essential. In addition the terrain is hard going in places.
