From Cefn Coch. The heathery nightmare is over on the drop down to the bwlch. Figenau looks monstrous on approach. The track marked on map is pretty ancient and under the grass numerous ruts make it unsuitable forwalkung. Compact summit and what a spot. Its a crying shame that more folk dont walk it.stig_nest18/06/2016
Parked at end of minor road at 913303 (Space for 3 or 4 cars) - Forest road to ride/stream bed at 908292 - Followed old fence posts up ride to ridge - Lledwyn Mawr - Foel Figenau - Cefn Coch - On return, skirted to S. of Foel Figenau & crossed the BWF where it kinks NE of Moel Cerigduon - An easy walk through trees to small quarry in clearing at high point of forest road. (S)gerrybowes03/06/2016
Anti-clockwise round of the four Deweys. 8 miles and almost all off path including a lot of heather/bilberry bashing. 3 1/2 hours. Post on Foel Figenau is now fallen but still lying there forlornly.clivevilla12/08/2015
Parking possible by Rhyd-y-bod farm. Lledwyn Mawr, Foel Figenau, Cefn Coch (plenty of rough pathless heather) Foel Tyn-y-fron (relentless pathless heather) Moel Maes-y-llech (right of way through forest is obliterated but was able to detour through new plantation to SW as far as track then over felled section to point where public right of way emerges from the forest).ijpowell16/07/2015
Up from road to north using forest road. Lots of new snow on the open ground - very slippery in descentColin Crawford13/03/2015
From Llangower station.mad max22/10/2014
Easy parking at end of road at 913304. On broad forest road around curve until it starts to drop at wide quarry turning point at 912287 and 200m due north through mature pines to moor. To left and to top with wooden post at 13.50.arranc10/09/2014
Done in a round of the four Aran Deweys east of the main ridge.chriswatson11/07/2014
After Foel Y Geifr I took a bearing and then headed over the fenceline eventually meeting up with a grassy track that heads for Foel Figenau before veering off and then it was up the steep grassy sides to the obvious summit. Great looking hill from afar. I went down the North side heading towards Lledwn Mawr, but it was getting pretty dark so head torch was used. On this day I started from Llangynog and climbed Moel Dimoel, Cyrnaiu Nod, Cefn Gwyntog, Stac Rhos,Pen Y boncyn Trefeilw, Pen Y cerrig Duon, Foel Goch, Trum Y Gwragedd and Foel Y Geifr.Dazingdale06/05/2014
From Llanuwchllyn over Lledwyn Mawr and Fowl Figenau before hitting the Berwyn heather! Then out to Foel y Geifr before trudging back over Cefn Coch to Foel Tyn-y-fron. The descent was more pleasant!SS08/03/2014
Exquisite view of Aran Fawddwy from here.Alex C06/08/2013
Part of a great circular walk including Foel Goch and is-afon with a start/finish point of 913303.JohnStoneham05/05/2013
Hard through the heather to the summit of Foel Tyn-y-fron from Bwlch y Pawl. Over Cefn Coch, Foel Figenau (steep) and then Lledwyn Mawr. Dropped down to Bryn melyn and back to Coed Tyn-y-fedw to the start point at SH 90249 26527.MikeM04/05/2012
Easy parking at end of road to NNW. Cross the bridge and then gate and turn Right - not left towards the house - follow path until meet the wide forest road. A break in the forest(lost coords but I think 9087 2918)gets you out of the trees into open land.destaylor01/03/2012
