5/9 Marilyn. From highpoint parking to the west. Over moorland via good and mainly dry path. Fine views.N.Morters24/07/2020

Walk across Golden Road starting near Mynachlogddu with M & R.TeamEak19/01/2020
With E. From car park off B4329. Along paths by forest edge up to summit. Dry underfoot. An easy walk. Great views in all directions. Cloudy and a slight breeze made it ideal walking conditions. Nice to bag our last of the 13 Welsh historic county tops. Tea and cake at Caffi'r Sgwar, Maenclochog to celebrate.Beeliner18/07/2019
From roadside in village up through the field and onto the main path to the summit past the forest. Very misty with a constant drizzle which became quite the downpour at the top. No views whatsoever, but a good climb, 90mins up and down.Stuzinho29/05/2019

A disappointing top coming after the nicer ones to the east. Did as part of a traverse of the Presellies from Crymach to Newport.Alan Moore02/01/2019
From parking at SN 074321. A boggy section along the N edge of the forest can be avoided by using two stiles to access a hardcore track on the S side of the forest fence.Isbjorn13/11/2018
From the west starting at road pass. Clear day with lines of sight to Snowdon and Devon. Tried to cut through the forest on the way in, with negative consequences.Topographer5728/09/2018

From big car park, 075322. Dry, sunny, warm and great views.iangalbraith04/07/2017
Parked at the bealach between Cerrig Lladron and Foel Cwmcerwyn. Bagged Cerrig Lladron first, returned to the car for some lunch and then climbed Foel Cwmcerwyn. The bridleway marked on the map seems to be patchy, but there's a well worn, if somewhat boggy, path to the summit. With Keith and baby Ross.islamidget03/07/2017
Quick blast out up to the summit as the sun was setting! Stunning views of the surrounding countryside and coastline. Lovely way to finish off a nice few days camping in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.Gerry the Ranger18/06/2017

Easy parking at Bwlch-gwynt (SN 07521 32187). Followed bridleway west to harvested plantation corner at Pen Cisty then follow distinct path worn through boggy ground to summit.

From Bwlch-gwynt car park. Route and write-up at:
Final hill of a two day South Wales Marilyn mission. From Bwlch Gwynt car park. A pretty wet climb with lots of squelchy bits. Nowhere difficult though. Summit reached in just over half an hour skirting around the felled forestry area en route. My last Welsh historic county top. Chatted with young couple at summit and confirmed route back for them. Descended direct to felled trees. A short section crossing the clear fell with care. Arrived back at car and had a nice chat with couple who had found their way back too.stig_nest16/09/2016
From SN 08538 29304 accompanied most of the way by a calling cuckoo. Track surprisingly soggy. Interesting latches on the gates. Pity the corrugated pub ar Rosebush is no more.Newton Maximus18/05/2016

County top no. 58. There by train from Cambridge to Clunderwen (via Kings Cross, Paddington and Cardiff)and taxi to Rosebush. Walked Rosebush > Foel Cymcerwyn > Bedd Arthur > Crymych, then bus to Clunderwen and train back home. Walking distance 10.1 mls; time 4:57; climbed 1749 feet. A wonderful walk across the hauntingly beautiful Preseli Hills on a warm, sunny September days, although the views were restricted by the haze drifitng in on the easterly breeze (temp 18 deg C).alan.65to7009/09/2014
Continuation of walk from Cerrig Lladron. Took path east to B4329, then bridleway east to forest edge, and path south to summit. To descend, followed path and bridleway SSW along forest edge,then path west down into Rosebush.Man of Kernow130/07/2014
Easy 3k stroll on good, well-marked path from B4329 with only 130m of elevation to gain. Heavy overnight rain made for some slightly boggy patches, but nothing to cause trouble.jonglew28/07/2014
FIrst proper walk in the Preseli Mountains. A fine hill with good views. Boggy approach from NW though.huwthomas05/05/2014
A stroll along the ridge of the Presseli Hills from near Crymych.Owain G21/04/2014
An easy walk from the top of the B4329. As it was a fine sunny day we walked on to Carngoedog which has been identified by Geologists as one of sites of origin of the Stonehenge bluestones. Why people would cart massive stones from this place to Wiltshire is beyond me - religiously motivated no doubt. Failed to find the wreck of the Fairy Battle on the north side of Carn bica as time was pressing and Mrs Mindlessflogger was stomping off back to the car.mindlessflogger21/04/2014
With G.B from Bwlch-gwynt on B4329 in glorious weather.bolton10/03/2014

Parked to the nw thinking that less height gain would be better. Wrong. It was quiter boggy in places and the forest paths do not go where you want resulting in boggy man-eating tussocks being negotiated.clivevilla15/11/2011
From large car park at SN 075321. A VERY boggy tramp. Tried to avoid some of it by going into forest but wouldn't recommend it - a tricky double fence to negotiate.citygent13/09/2011

Parked at SN075321. Path, boggy in parts takes you to final rise, then over a stile to the top. Very cold wind. Nice views. Returned to car and did Cerrig LLadron for good measure.robphys14/02/2008
Trig point and cairn mark the top. Quite a hard walk with my 2 year old daughter in her rucksack.isabelle05/06/2007
Pleasant enough walking but rather uninspiring I thought. The Tafarn Zinc pub nearby was much more interesting.signyred05/07/2006
The approach from the north, starting at the high road to the nw is not particularly amazing. Perhaps the steeper ascent from the village to the south would be better.nddavies05/10/2005
First Welsh Hill walk: Foel Drygarn-Foel Cwmcerwyn. Very Underated part of Wales.DanTrig27/07/2005
Climbed on an overnight expedition to Pembrokeshire. Did a fine traverse of the Preseli hills from the east, then back again.Man of Kernow104/06/2005
Loved this hill - windy enough to dry off the sleet of Craig y Llyn, views over the whole of Pembrokeshire, and a peculiar bath-shaped pool at the summit. Admittedly it might have just seemed impressive compared to the Berkshire unitary tops though...wheresthepath02/10/2004

Brisk walk over firm ground for 1 3/4 m. Good views especially to S. One hour up and down.arranc08/04/1984
With JEL and SJB. We had an afternoon walk up here after a very showery morning, when we visited Pentre Ifan. Started at Bwlch Gwynt, walked via blue stones, went on Ma summit, and over to Carn Sian and Carn Bica before returning on a track below the summits. Views were amongst my furthest ever, with Snowdon clearly visible.pwheeler25/09/1981
