18.75 miles, 2127ft, start at Llanfoist on Cambrian Way to Blorenge, Mynydd Garnclochdy, Mynydd Garn Wen trig point, return via Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.stephenbuda04/01/2020
From Pontypool town centre, up through Pontypool Park, past the folly and the trig pillar, then along the scarp to the highest area: it wasn't clear exactly where the high point is, so I wandered around taking in what looked like the best candidatesMariana Trench21/06/2019
Parked to the south at the Little Mountain car park then headed north, visiting the trig point first, a couple of geocaches and the two high points referenced here. It's pretty tricky saying where the high point is but I had a good stomp around the area.Father Ted30/04/2019
Parked at the Goose and Cuckoo. Lane was quite icy due to heavy snowfall the previous day. Delightful walking up tree lined fp before breaking out onto snow covered moor. Super morning.Campbell Singer02/02/2019
From the end of Waterworks Road to the SW. Mostly pathless and tussocky and boggy in parts. Went to both possible tops which are both flat. It took about 80 minutes altogether.clivevilla17/12/2018
Spent morning in Penarth. Then this solitary hill on a muggy afternoon before returning home. Had to visit today so as I can complete on Flat Holm this Sunday, weather permitting.Dusty25/09/2017
