Bwlch Penbarra car park is essentially an 'honesty box' car park. There are no prominent signs showing a parking fee, or a penalty for not paying. The 2 remaining machines are out of the way, unsigned. The council clearly knows that any parking ticket could be contested and they would lose. Like a lot of other rural car parks, inc. some Nat Trust CPs! Pleasant walks up both hillshenryfm23/08/2019

An easy run around from the extortionate car park charges for an hour and a halfs joggingShutterlag28/10/2016
The no. 76 bus from Llanbedr to Llangwyfan allows a fabulous linear walk taking in 4 Marilyns: Penycloddiau, Moel Famau, Foel Fenlli and Moel Gyw. Mainly easy going on the Offa's Dyke path, with a few steep deviations onto the summits. Superb views and wonderful little hills. Penycloddiau can be accessed via a steep, faint path off the Clywdian Way above Fron-gelyn, just past a massive iron tank. (The paths marked on the OS map do not exist). Coastguard helicopter rescuing fallen walker on the way up MF, then several dozen school kids at the top!Gill14/10/2016

Took a while to get to this one despite trying to park a little higher up the hill. It was very hot and this seemed to slow me down even further.

Stayed at The Golden Lion at Llangynhafal with Kathryn. Took what I though was a short cut from the pub straight on to the hills but ended up covering a lot of the same ground that we had walked the day before! Was a hot day and had overestimated the miles we were hoping to do so my daughter who was staying in the area gave us a lift to Castle mill. Ended up only walking 6 miles today due to the terrain and the heat!Suzyj10/07/2015
