As Aye Jimmy, easy parking by start of track at 035546 - Through forest to end of track. High point appears to be somewhere on the S. edge of the turning circle. (S)gerrybowes15/01/2019
From road to S. Two metal gated tracks lead into wood 100m apart, it's the more E one (the other leads into a quarry). Track followed through forest to end at turning circle and indefinite summit at log piles.Aye Jimmy10/06/2018

Continuation of walk from Cefn Du. Rejoined mountain track south, turning west at first junction to follow another track SW for about 1km to the dried-up Llyn Gloyw. Then struggled SW with difficulty by overgrown firebreaks to a south-north road - far better to turn north at the Llyn down to the east-west road. Followed road north past one junction, then straight on north at next junction on a lane round the east flank of Foel Glasnach. Where the metalled road ends and a track begins, a narrow rutted path heads up into the forest (SJ 03818 55345). This eventually emerged in daylight at the end of the forest track that runs right past the summit of the hill. To return, took outward route down to the road junctions, turning east at the second to follow the road for about 3km back to the car.Man of Kernow121/06/2015
