A walk (approx. 4 hrs) up the water board road towards Pen Y Helgi Du (The head of the black hound) near the Ffynnon Llugwy reservoir.
Parking is available at the Gwern Gof Isaf campsite for a couple of pounds for the day. Pay at the farmhouse. From the car park turn right along the A5 (be careful walking along the road, the pavement is narrow and vehicles are moving very fast) until you reach the very long straight road leading up to the reservoir on your left. The path onto the ridges is to the right of the reservoir. It is a pleasant walk just to the reservoir or you can continue onto the Craned Llewelyn to the left or onto Pen Y Helgi Du to the right (check on your map). There are well walked paths leading down form Pen y Helgi Du back to the A5. Remember always go prepared. the weather changes very quickly on the mountains. Contact Snowdonia National Park for more information about walking in the area.(click website).
