Parked on a straighter/wider section of road to the SW - more than enough room for the subsequent tractor passing. Steep up through the sodden fields and contour path round in the woods to the S and up again through pasture fields and open gate to the trig. Returned same way. Several buzzards overhead before going into the woods. Chilly wind on top. Solorichard6905/11/2023

A sunset walk from Dawn of Day to complete section 32.Gill25/02/2018
Just over a mile up and down route from near Dawn of Day farm (not great for parking), easy footpaths then across field to top, nice views from summit. Clear and very cold as sun was going down, the last hill of the day, earlier that day bagged Allt Yr Esgair, Waun Fach again and Pen.Y.Gadair-Fawr again and May Hill, Gloucestershire.DanTrig23/02/2018
I'm sure it's a lovely hill but today you could barely see 5 metres ahead. Not wet though so that was a bonus.Alex C27/01/2018
Parked at the Y junction to the west, climbed first two fields but once on the forestry track had to go a long way to the North to get round and onto the summit. Try the opposite way because our way was way too muddy!nickywood128/11/2017

From Dawn of Day. Walk to left of fence going up. Over stile then straight to top.jenx06/10/2016
From parking by the house, same as last time except its now called Dawn of Day. No sign of the dogs this time so perhaps they moved on. Easy grassy walk on another lovely day with those viewsnordicstar06/10/2016
