Parked at start of track marked unsuitable for turning but there were places to turnPip5601/03/2019
Drove to the top of Heolgerrig which gave good height. Easy parking. Don't go up the narrow lane as turning is difficult as the sign states. Yet more unsightly fly tipping. Merthyr is experiencing an epidemic.Campbell Singer03/04/2018
From top of Heolgerrig. More fly tipping in Merthyr.Barbara Singer03/04/2018
Parked at 027058. I hate to think how much fly-tipping there would be if there were no signs. Qucick up and back to the trig by the second mast. Nice view of Merthyr if that is not an oxymoron.clivevilla13/03/2018
From minor road to SE. Parked where the fly-tippers usually do.jonglew09/12/2016
Parked near bus stop. Tarmac road to the col, but not a lot of space due to fly tipping. Through pasture to trig. Good views to BB's. HP seemed to be in next field.PeterD31/07/2016
