Llantysilio Mountain

This is a circular walk of 7 miles over Llantysilio Mountain.  It also includes the summits of Moel Morfydd, Moel y Gamelin, and Moel y Faen.

The route starts out on a quiet tarmac lane before following footpaths and bridleways, which can be muddy in places.  Another very brief section of quiet lane is followed by a grassy track, which climbs to meet a wide stony path to the summit of Moel Morfydd.  The route follows this stony track as it undulates over the other summits, and is quite steep in places, so requires a good level of fitness.  Finally, it drops down on stony and grassy tracks to the car park, where you can reward yourself with a cuppa and cake at the cafe.

Parking opposite the Ponderosa cafe is free but limited, and on uneven ground.
