Mynydd Ynyscorrwg and Mynydd Blaengwynfi more or less as marktrengrove. 6.72 miles. Blaengwynfi is a depressing little town.clivevilla25/08/2017
From Mynydd Ynyscorrwg. Rejoined the overgrown higher track, taking it east to rejoin the forest road. Followed this east round the head of Cwm Gwynfi, and then south. Diverted onto a lesser track at SS 90727 97476, following it all the way to very close to the summit - in a clearing just off he track. Continued to Twyn Crugyrafan. Solo.Man of Kernow117/06/2017
From Caroline Terrace, Abergwynfi, on 6 mile circular walk to take in Mynydd Ynyscorrwg also. HP by trig pillar at clearing in conifer plantation. Long section of wind farm access roads between the 2 hills.jonglew01/02/2017
Started in Upton Street, Blaegwynfi and followed track up into forest. Followed track to SS 89982 96953 and turned left. Again followed track. Quite a mess in places with bike tracks cutting the track up. Turned right at SS 89965 97370 and followed track to Mynydd Blaengwynfi. Reversed track for a short distance and then followed a series of paths and tracks to Twyn Crugyrafan. Descended to road and then up to top of Werfa. Crossed moor and climbed up to top of Mynydd Caerau. Steep at start of climb up. Walked across moors back to Blaengwynfi. Good walk. Mainly on tracks and paths but badly cut up in places by the boys on bikes.MikeM05/05/2016

From Blaengwynfi up path to forest track (note the upper one isnít obvious from top of path). Then on over tracks and paths to trig point (keep your eyes peeled Ė screened by trees). Round forestry tracks past a wind turbine base and on up past old water tank to summit. Made mistake of trying to drop from mast to village on old track (donít). Came down to west on tracks in the end.SS15/03/2015
