From Croesor: Cnicht, Cnicht North Top, Moel-yr-hydd, Moelwyn Mawr North Top, Moelwyn Mawr, Craigsgafyn. With a small group from Hiking Manchester. Day started brigt and clear, then became very misty and difficult to navigate. Had to abandon walk and miss out Moelwyn Bach. One for another day...Lazylizzie02/11/2019
Parked at croesor, circular walk. Ascent to cnicht, followed path to edge of llyn yr Adar, took a south towards the quarry, ascent to moelwyn mawr, decent down craigysgfan, then west down valley to road.noxibis17/11/2018
This was a great walk. Not sunny but dry and cloud was generally quite high. Great view of Porthmadog and other tops. Loved the ruined quarry landscapes. Hard to comprehend how huge these quarries were and how many people they employ unless you actually go there and walk round. Started in Tanygrisia and up to Rhosydd Quarry, Moel-yrHydd, past the huge 'twll', North Ridge Top, Moelwyn Mawr,Craigysgafn, Moelwyn Bach, down to Croesor village, Cnicht, North Top and then back to the quarry via the col and down to Tanygrisia.tsharp10/09/2018
