Route Outline

The Cambrian Mountains were once considered as a possible National Park. Sadly, the proposal never went ahead and this area of rounded hills and wild country remains relatively unvisited. This walk features the summit of Pen y Garn which rises to 2001 feet above sea level (610 metres) and can be easily reached from the car park (grid ref. SN765755) close by the Arch on the B4574 east of Devil's Bridge.
