Abercegir- Cefn Coch- Darowen- Ffridd Pen-y-Graig- Darowen- Fron Goch- Nantygaseg- Abercegir day walk with Pete. Our first hill- up most of the way on the Owain Glyndwr way with a little trespass to get on the ridge. Only summit-bagging purists need to negotiate the barbed wire fence along the ridge- so thatís all this siteís users. We found an abandoned tractor door which we used to help! To get to Darowen, we used the most direct bridleway. Though thereís no sign of it on the ground where it leaves the OGW at SH 8256 0285, there are gates in all the right places down to Tynant.pwheeler17/09/2018

From end of road to ENE (not on satnav). You can follow a fence more directly than Glyndwr's Way although it involves a couple of barbed wire fences.clivevilla23/07/2015
Park at end of rising lane to south of Glantwyrmyn. Just enough room to avoid blocking farm gates. Walk westward along Glyndwr's Way. Delightful easy walk with superb views for such a low hill. 40 minutes, there and back.Campbell Singer05/07/2015
