Parked at 856874, up the track. I took the track which forks left aiming for the open ground which worked well until the reentry into the forest. So I tried to head south to find the other track on my return but that was not significantly better. Maybe I did not find the correct fire break.clivevilla08/11/2019
Started at the Forestry car park to SW. from forest track thrashed north through thick pines to firebreak area with moss and bog and two possible HPs. Easier exit north and continued to Banc y Groes. Later visited possible HP on track to east near former reservoir / aerial but did not visit final contour east of this within forest- too much thrashing for one ( wet) day!Denise 09/02/2019
As pwheeler. Short flog up overgrown firebreak with brash and brambles. Top section much more pleasant going.Moorponder17/10/2018
Parked at SN856874, space which was being used as an overspill on a busy Su. Better than main car pk for being close to tracks which we followed to SN864871. The firebreak here was just evident, filling up with trees, undergrowth and brash. An earlier firebreak was no longer evident. A fight, in orienteering terms, but a short one mercifully, to the high point which we're relieved is the one depicted. Good view of Plynlimon. Started to rain. A pure bag. With brother, Pete.pwheeler30/04/2017
6/6 Last of six on sunny & wet cold day (Drybedd/Llechwedd Hirgoed West Top/Llechwedd Hirgoed SE Top/Allt Pant Mawr/Cefn Hirbysg/Llehweddy Glyn)Fergalh06/11/2016
Parked at start of track (SN856874). Track NE to edge of forest, up grassy field to summit area, some thrashing about to visit the two suggested tops.Chris Peart12/07/2014
Forestry car park in Hafren Forest. uphill on road for 400 yards to a forest ride uphill to the edge of plantations. Over a locked gate and two BWFs Over rough grass to the E/W grid refce. indicating a 200 yard thrash through 10' high conifers. Reasonable approach over treacherous ground to a small rise. Virtually flat top.arranc31/08/2012
P start of track NE then S then NE. I think the summit is beside the dismantled mast.chrisbien12/03/2012
I might be biased but UPM Tilhill forests are always worse than Forestry Commission ones. This is typical.Martin R27/08/2011
As DL. Mature trees currently being felled.destaylor15/08/2011
another nightmare forestry hill. the top could be anywhere.It is best to approach from the forest track which starts west and goes north east. once out of the tress follow the new fenceline south east right to the corner. then head south west and visit thDARRENG13/06/2011
Park to west and used forest track that first travels NE before turning south.At SN8644387057 I entered forest on an easy route thro mature trees to find open summit which could be around many tree stumps on flattish summit area with young conifers nearbyDugswell226/03/2011
