Parked in the top car park (free) and followed the path out from the end of the car park steeply uphill to it's join with the track. Followed the track to the junction where the Drum track goes off to the right. Followed this until it was possible to move over roughish ground to the bwlch between Pen Bryn-du and Yr Orsedd. Up to top of Yr Orsedd (steep at top)and then along ridge and bwlch to Foel-ganol. Dropped down to bwlch between Foel-ganol and Foel Dduarth. Took a path, probably the hill ponies created this, down to the enclosures close to the pylons and then back to the car park taking vague paths through gorse. Nice half day walk.MikeM06/12/2016
