We first discovered this walk in the long hot summer of 1976 and it has been a favourite half day walk ever since in all weathers and at all times of the day. It gets one easily into the outlying reaches of the Cambrian Mountains to the East of Aberystwyth on a route that you rarely share with anyone. With changing views over the surrounding valleys, the country is wild without being inhospitable. The tracks are clear so that less experienced walkers should have no problems finding the route even if the weather turned and visibility reduced; on the other hand an experienced walker might like to take advantage of the clear tracks to take a walk on a long fine summer evening to watch the sunset over Cardigan Bay, completing the walk in the dusk without too much difficulty - if a period of dry weather is chosen.
It is recommended you take a map with you when following a walk route. The preferred scale is 1:25000 used by the Explorer series.
Note : If two maps are listed at the same scale then either (a) both are required for full coverage of the route or (b) the route is covered on both maps.
