Parked to the NNW at right-angled bend SJ252501. Along track South East for about 150 yards then South across heather.David Evans22/12/2019
Parked near the bend to the west. Terrible fly tipping. The Welsh seem to be very good at it. Met the gamekeeper and had a pleasant conversation about fly tipping and tics. Up quad track and the 200 mts across to heather to good viewpoint.Campbell Singer27/10/2019
Parked to the north of World's End, where the road leaves the forest and by the cattle grid. Took a track to Pt.470, from where an atv track went all the way to the summit of Eglwyseg Mountain. We then ascended Cefn y Cyst and Esclusham Mountain on atv tracks and rough heather and bilberry moor when the atv tracks ran out. A road walk took us back to the car. With JT.Sprog25/05/2019
As Aye Jimmy. Enough space to park considerately in large passing place on bend at 252501 - Along track for about 350m & then SSW over heather to summit cairn. (S)gerrybowes07/02/2019
1/3 Eglwyseg range. Straightforward heather bash from road, first properly frosty day I've seen this winter.tumpawumpa02/01/2019
Pleasant exploration of the mountain(?)including trig and top starting from Minera lead mining centre.Surprised to see a lone Canada goose wandering round in the midst of the sheep!With Oscar.catman06/06/2018

From bend in road to NNW. Very muddy churned-up track to shoulder of hill, then a section of heather SSW with water-filled potholes to cairn.Aye Jimmy26/01/2018
Fairly straightforward direct from Worlds End road. If not for this road this place would be miles from anywhere. Feels everybit as remote too. Snall cairn. Lovely day.. 1 to go in Wxmstig_nest11/05/2017

Glyndyfrdwy to Coedpoeth. Final hill of the day. A very wet walk to OD from Cyrn-y-Brain then along the road. Visited the top and the trig point, the grass around it being a comfier place to halt. Interesting views of the English-Welsh border, England being predominantly flat and Wales being markedly hilly!Jake99408/04/2016

Continuation of walk/run after Cefn y Cist. Followed trackless high ground NE then NW to join moorland road near Gwyter Siani. Then steeply up onto plateau. After Pt.460m continued on to trig point on north top of hill. Returned by grassy track to road, and so south back to car at SJ 23254 48712.Man of Kernow115/05/2013
