From the south starting below Cefnhinog per Gill and others. The path is mostly OK. There is a gate at 082499 just below the corner of the BWF, continue up to the corner and onto a nice path that leads up to the pond, from where the trig and several ponies were visible.Topographer5708/09/2019

walked over with sam from Hundred House after real ale ramble weekend, filthy day, welsh fat stock show in Builth, v busyrichardrosser27/11/2018
Parked at A481/B4567 junction so walk could be combined with Carneddau. Ascended via Rhiw Rhwslyn. Descended via right of way starting at 085527 and ending up by the old chapel on the A481 at 079532. Light snow shower on plateau.mindlessflogger27/10/2018
Solo. From lay-by at junction of A481 and B4567 roads. On paths via Noyaddllyd, Tynllwy and Pen-y-waun, the latter being ruined. Visited trig point and the alternative summit before returning same way. Misty with drizzle to start with but it cleared up to give good views from the summits.pwbellarby17/09/2018
Perfect description from Gill. Thanks. Farmer at parking spot stopped and said have a nice walk, so no problem. Hot, sunny and great views.iangalbraith20/07/2018
My penultimate Welsh Marilyn. The route from the NW road junction looked ugly, so I climbed it from Cefnhinog instead. Good parking by the stream to the SW of the farm entrance. Lovely walk up the valley, only a very short bit of wet path near the farm, after that it's great going through fine trees. Higher up, don't follow the footpath sign down into the stream, it's ridiculously steep, just walk up the field and step easily over the BWF onto the moor. Fine stroll to the summit on grassy tracks past several pools, and great views from the top.Gill23/04/2018
16.4 mile walk bagging 7 hills from pass north-west from Painscastle, followed lane across moors to Red Hill, then took path west to end of minor road at Pentre farm, followed minor road for 2.3 miles to Cregrina (saw one car), followed road then overgrown lane into small copse and ascended through a jungle of bracken to Wylfre East Top, continued across grassy moor lanes to Wylfre, Aberedw Hill North Top and Aberedw Hill bagging both tumuli, headed south to small lane through private land back to minor road, headed south on roads passed Court Farm and down to river then followed riverside road to end of open access area then climbed trail not on map (other paths on map don't exist) up to Llanbedr Hill and along lane to Llanbedr Hill East Top back to car. Mostly dull weather with high cloud, saw no other walkers.DanTrig29/07/2017

From Fforest Fields camp site where we were staying. Up through the woods and across the moors to the trig point and back the same way. Lovely day, nice hill, fantastic campsite. With Keith and baby Ross.islamidget07/06/2017
Parked on nearby country road reached via Aberedw. Lovely sunny day, great views.liljonb11/04/2017
From A481/B4567 junction/layby. Followed good tracks up and down.rhalstead18/02/2017
Had planned a leisurely 5 mile route from the NE starting from overnight base at Fforest Fields Caravan/Camping Site near Hundred House, but the overnight rain had been replaced by fog down to about 300m, so decided on shorter route starting to the SE (SO 06892 50066)Light drizzle on the summit but periodic views of the Wye Valley on descent as broke through cloud. Straight forward ascent up farm track to summit rim then footpath throgh grass to trig and summit. Caught a glimpse of ancient cairn to the east and visited in case was higher.SteveSmith23/11/2016
From lay-by at junction of A481 and B4567. Good path via Rhiw Rhwstyn.Lionel Bidwell30/03/2016
From lane below Cefnhinog farm. ROW goes up a messy sunken lane, no one about so i passed through farmyard and picked up a far better track which followed stream and into wooded area. Further up the track junctions left to pass through the stream bed which is a very steep sided almost gorge like feature. Ignored this and continued straight up into open access area. East top from afar looks like it is trigged, its not -heather tuft. Pool with sunken speedboat..bizarre. Trig has a majestic 360° view. Seriously windy.stig_nest27/03/2016
Couldn't find parking to the west. Did at 096498 on side of road. Followed footpath diagonally across field containing sheep towards corner of wood & the headed up towards what looked highest. Trig was easy spotted as it's painted white.CodyleCoyote16/03/2016

Continuation of walk from Aberedw Hill North Top. Walked down on track to broad bwlch, then up by tracks and paths past pool to trig point. Eventually joined there by CE and companions for her final Pedwar celebration. Then headed over other two tumuli and down east flank of hill to little wood, over fence (barbed) and down to lane near where car parked. With MP, AW and AC.Man of Kernow125/04/2015
Lovely round of superlative hills in fine company and with a caterpillar cake and champagne to finish the day off just perfectlyAlex C25/04/2015

I used the parking and route detailed by dicky and it worked a treat. Say by the tig point and watched the hundreds of sheep being rounded up by shepards on scrambling bikes and four sheepdogs. Visited the tumulus too before heading back down.Father Ted22/09/2013
Pleasant walk from the back of Fforest Fields campsite (follow their signs for Aberedw).milimana07/07/2013
Walked from Builth centre, but found good layby to park on A481 at bend 062 517. Then clear bridleway NE and east and up zig zag track to Pen-waun pool. Good paths, no bogs, blazing sun today - and every single gate worked like a dream - no lifting or heaving... most unusual.dicky06/07/2013
Parked at 068500 (might not be good if very wet) then up lane/track to Upper Goytre. Then a pleasant circuit on good tracks: Lyn Cawr, summit, nearby tumulus and tumuli SE of Pen Waun Pool before returning to Upper Goytre and lane I started on. Sunny, very good visibility all roundpwheeler07/05/2013

Another visitor on Paul McCartney's birthday! Penultimate Welsh Marilyn top for me - Trig @ 5.50pm & tumulus @ 6pm on lovely evening after squeezing car into pull in by gate to SE. Billberries will be fantastic in a few months time.signyred18/06/2012
Parked by farm to SSE (15:50). Up through field to ferny moorland; some faint paths. Went via twin summit (hill 2194) to trig point. Fine weather, good views. dbb18/06/2010
Parked at Noyaddllwyd to NW of hill and used sign FP to gain height then 2 gates to gain hillside on a fresh sunny morning with rain on the way.Dugswell225/04/2010
Limited parking on narrow road to SE. New stile and gate, and diagonally up hillside to summit plateau. Several small grassy bumps with trig sat on one at far side. Pleasant spot.Aye Jimmy20/03/2009
From SE. Excellent walk. Lovely area between the 2 tops. Will return.destaylor18/02/2009

Pleasant walk up from Cefnhinog Farm although the farmer politely asked me not to park in his yard opposite as there may be lorries turning. Parked further down the hill.clivevilla12/11/2008
