Route Outline

For those not wishing to do much strenuous hill walking, this short afternoon Snowdonia walk provides a surprisingly wild vantage point of North Wales despite its modest height of 344 metres. This route does include some mild scrambling and due to its short distance some paths mentioned are not marked on Explorer maps though easy to locate. This route is described from Bryntyrch (Grid ref. SH727578) but a start could also be made from the pay and display car park near the main road junction in the centre of the village (Grid ref. SH720582). Do ask permission if you are not using the facilities of the hotel, hostel or camp site at Bryntyrch.
