Parked in the lay by on the A458. Walked along the road to Dol-y-Maen. Followed forest road to just short of Tir Rhiwiog, took right fork and easily got to edge of the forest then up by fence to Drum Ddu with its splendid cairn (best summit of the walk). Retraced route back to track junction and to summit tree of Tir Rhiwiog. Then down forest road to just past the gate, left along sheep trod until under summit of Cefn Brith Uchaf, then direct up to the top. Back to the forest road and down to the first bend, then down and crossed the stream, picking up a small trod contouring round and going much of the way to Foel Lluestbadion, from where easy ascent of the top could be made. Headed down, crossing to the road above the deepening valley. Right down the road to forest edge. Then up ATV track, picking up another one going through cut plantation nearly to the top of Mynydd Maes-Glas (Mynydd Clywedog). Now east, skirting round the top of the bog, then up the energy sapping heather silveracorn_alan13/04/2023

Parked on tiniest bit of verge on minor road near Nant-yr-onog. Up track then north to Y Gribin. Good route. Long route NE then SE on mainly pathless rough moor to Foel Lluestbadion & Drum Ddu then SW to pick up track to Tir Rhiwiog. Cefn Brith Uchaf then more rough moor to Mynydd Maes-glas before returning north to West bound track back to start. Tough walking when not on tracks.ijpowell12/05/2017
Tir Rhiwiog, Drum Ddu, Foel Lluestbadlon, Cefn Brith Uchaf and Mynydd Maes-Glas from layby at 936139. Frisky cows with young calves on the first part of the track up and mostly pathless after Tir Rhiwiog but a glorious sunny day.clivevilla10/05/2017
Parked in the layby on A458. Took track up from main road at approx 943136 making a circular trip of Tir Rhiwiog, Drum Ddu, Foel Lluestbadlon, Cefn Brith Uchaf and Mynydd Maes-glas. Only attempted because the poor conditions prevented me from heading up Aran Fawddwy.JohnStoneham11/11/2013

Anyone who deliberately bags sub Deweys should be forcibly subdued. However this turned out be most interesting top of the day. Choice of firebreaks to get there.Martin R02/01/2013
