Cambrian Mountains Walk
Twm Town from Tregaron
Walk Route Description
1 - From the Talbot (behind you), walk over towards the bridge. Turn left, immediately before crossing (by garage), to go through a gate into the churchyard. Bear right to walk along a tarmac path and keep straight ahead between houses until the road widens and you can see a steep, narrow tarmac path leading uphill on your left. Take this to the top and turn right onto the road, then swing left onto the new drive, opposite the Fire Station
2 - Continue to a cattle grid and then bear left, over a stile. Keep the field edge to your left for a few paces and then bear right to drop into a dip and then climb steeply to a stile in the fence above - note that there are two stiles quite close together and you need the left hand, higher one.
3 -Walk up the field for 50m to another stile on your right. Cross this and bear half left to climb to another stile. Cross this and continue in the same direction to contour around with the hilltop to your left before dropping to a stile in a boggy corner, close to a pile of stones. Bear half right to cross the next narrow field to another stile and cross this then turn right onto a concrete drive.
4 - Follow this to a gate and shortly after this, bear left to walk, parallel to the edge of the field, up to a gate in the top corner. Go through and cross the farm drive to walk up a grassy ramp to another gate. Now follow the sunken track to a gate and go through to continue to a fork, where you keep right. Follow this until it eventually merges with a drive, where you turn right to follow the drive to a road. Turn left and follow the road easily down and then turn left to return to Tregaron passing a house named Porth y Ffynnon built close to where Twn Siôn Cati, a local 16th Century outlaw, was born.
