Parked by forest to west. Short heather and bilberry all the way. Not too bad.ijpowell11/07/2019
Parked south of Maes Hir, up the road then track to the bwlch before heading off across the heather using occasional traces of paths then the fence line which goes up between the two tops. Then back to the bwlch and up Y Graig following the forest boundary until the final bit up through growing Christmas trees which are penetrable although not easily.clivevilla07/01/2019

Good parking at the top of the Bwlch at 972332. There are some rough tracks to follow but it is a heather bash in places. 30 minutes solo return.bolton06/09/2017
We parked at SH 97515 34007 but it is possible to carry on and park easily at Bwlch y Fenni at SH 97218 33301 where a myriad of paths & tracks meet. From the bwlch we did Y Graig first then back to the bwlch for Moel Cae-Howel.David Gradwell23/08/2016
Parked Bwlch Y Fenni 973 333 where footpaths all intersect. Followed the track as far as possible, then cut across heather to top. Returned same way.Rob5006/07/2016
Tight squeeze to park by grit bin just outside maes hir gate. I needn't have bothered as the track onwards is a bridleway and tarmacced all the way through to farm on llangynog of pass and an obvious track goes off towards heathery top. Followed cut in heather around right of summit leaving only 10m or so of heather ascent to unmarked top. Superb view. So many hills. Arenig and Aran looking stunning.stig_nest24/05/2016
As Des Taylor. Parked on grass verge below gate at SH97519 34010 East across field, through metal gate & along extended vehicle track to within ½km of top Over fence & then a slog through heather to the unmarked summit. (S)gerrybowes08/05/2016
Dash for a break in the weather. Fine stroll from Queen's Quarry following fence to high point (vague path) then fairly comfortable heather bash to top.SS28/03/2015
Continuation of walk from Y Graig. Retraced outward route to Bwlch y Fenni, over a stile, and then took a track SSE to a gate. From there it was a typical wade through knee-high Berwyn heather to the flat summit (no feature) in a sea of high heather. Retraced my outward route back to the bwlch and down north to the beginning of the public road.Man of Kernow115/12/2014
Followed on from Foel Cwm Sian Llwyd.dicky07/09/2014
Parked easily at 975339 just before gate. Took grass field down (no need to cross wire)and traversed around the large barn on track. Last 275m is knee deep heather but last 100m of it is easier.destaylor17/10/2013
