From the Nature Reserve CP. Followed the zig zag track to the view point bench and over the BW fence using the diagonal and tree to assist. Wandered around the summit area to ensure we found the top. Good views to Snowdon and Cadair IdrisJephcote8312/08/2019

As Rhalstead. Note - drive past house (unsurfaced road) and about 200m later you'll find the Woodland Trust car park. Hot, sunny and good views.iangalbraith19/07/2018
A nice walk from the nature reserve car park, just beyond Tan-yr-Allt cottage. Very pleasant narrow mossy path up through oak woods, a vehicle track, a very quick thrash across some brash, over a BWF and to the top, with great views. Hail storm on the way down, gave spectacular cloud effects when able to see. Down the vehicle track all the way.Gill15/02/2018

Quick hill. Parked by the chapel to E.twg2714/02/2017
Parked in Nantgwyn by phone box opposite church, up track as gerrybowes, across fields, plenty of gates to summit. In clag, shotguns being fired far to close for my liking so back down track at a rapid rate of knots! With CodyleCoyote.rogreeves14/02/2017
Up and down from roadside to east (room for a car) in half an hour between showers.SS28/01/2017

Spoke to the very nice chap at Tan yr Allt who advised there was a parking space just up past his. Then followed zigzag forest path which actually goes right to the hillcrest. Just a nip over 1 b/wire fence to grassy summit. A great view point. Theres some might fine hills down these parts..and because theyre less than 2000ft theyre very quiet. Trees on the upper section have been cleared. A bench faces to Plynlimon.stig_nest16/02/2016
Parked in a small quarry on the minor road south of the hill. Walked west along the road and then steeply up through the oak woods at a rusty pedestrian gate. the path eventually leads to another rusty gate and a field. A short walk through fields and a felled forest lead to the highest point.mindlessflogger20/06/2015

With GB & PMCJM27/10/2014
Met brother who had been hillbagging further S. Plenty of space for our 2 cars at Nantgwyn, opposite chapel. Went S. along road & then took the first track on right after 300m, followed it up through pastures S. of Cenarth Wood. No ROW, nor access land, but there's no discouragement either. Nice views though this hill is surrounded by higher hills- glimpse through to Cader Idris. Not very exciting hill but nice enough way of spending 55 mins.pwheeler04/05/2013
easy walk from the church through some fields. no clear high point on this hill, although the map says it should be the first thing you meet. it isnt obvious.tallblond18/11/2012

Crafty bag after work before parent's evening. Parked to E and scampered up avoiding farmer. Caught up with him on the way down but only exchanged hello's. Must be used to people running up and down this hill by now!robphys19/10/2005
