Second of five Dewey's on a 18 mile walk from the parking at Llyn Berwyn taking seven hours. Route forest road to east of Gopa Uchaf then fire break to base of hill dropped down far side to footpath after fording stream followed this to Garn Gron, continued on footpath/bridleway until I reached road connecting to the cycle way north east, followed forest road past Llyn Du up fire break to Mynydd Tywi down other fire break headed east and then up another fire break to reach the east top, returned to forest road heading south to finally take in Cefn y Cnwc, continued heading south on forest road until phone box then headed west up road to car.WAYNE ROWLETT10/06/2018
From Mynydd Tywi East Top. Returned south on the tracks to a junction, then bridleway near Nantymaen Farm NW up the valley, past a large cairn, and onwards north. At the highest point on the bridleway a narrow path leads up to the summit. Onwards to Gopa Uchaf. Solo.Man of Kernow103/06/2018
Sufficient room for 1 car at end of road at 719605 E. up farm track & after crossing stream headed NE to summit. Some bog & tussock, but not too bad with occasional trods & ATV tracks. (S)gerrybowes11/11/2017
From Mynydd Twyi trig. Descent OK through felled forest. Wet and rough in pretty much a straight line to the SW corner of the remaining forest, then across the BW and up to the summit. Tried to get to Gopa Uchaf but the river was impassable. Used BW to return to the telephone box.Moorponder30/09/2017
From just off mountain road above Diffwys using forestry track to get close to Gopa Uchaf. No tree bashing but rough underfoot for last hundred yards to fence. Dropped to Groes Fawr and followed track to very close to summit of Carn Gron (signposted) with its trig, windshelter and large cairn. Came back by taking obvious (from a distance) firebreak to track - this was pretty rough but better than walking back thev way I'd come.SS08/07/2017

Gopa Uchaf, Llethr Llwyd, Gopa Uchaf and Y Drum from parking at 718605. A lot of off path but mostly grassy although a little boggy in places and a bit tricky to get back across the river.clivevilla12/07/2016

As RHW. Bits of bog in the middle bit but had been dry so not bad. Great summit.destaylor05/09/2014
Walked from 76250 57625 to the south east. Breezy but clear morning. Not too wet underfoot. Visited the Talbot Hotel for a pint after walk. A pint of Glaslyn no less from the Purple Moose Brewery.Dusty22/10/2011
