Circular walk from Llanwonno. Mainly good forest tracks/paths. Lots of felling/burning/new planting in area. Ddu Allt, Pen Craig Abercwmboi, Coed Cae Aberaman, Cefn Gwyngul & Tylorstown Tip.Arbie03/05/2019
Easy ascent on forestry road to trig point. Then on to Coed Cae AberamonPeterD22/04/2019
Walked up from the road to the SE. Not the most interesting way to approach this Tump I guess but it is an east if slightly monotonous walk. There is a little dog leg section at the end jut before the high point to break the monotony.Father Ted17/08/2018
