Moderate 10 miles
Overcast, some light rain
Moderate 10-mile ramble, starting from the car park at Keepers Lodge, about a mile north of Brechfa. Route principally follows the course of the Afon Marlais, through the woodland of the Brechfa Forest, before traversing moorland to the cairn and “shalom” sculpture and trig point (S2528, TP218), marking the summit of Mynydd Llanfihangel-rhos-y-corn.
From here it proceeds north, towards Mynydd LLanllwni, before crossing a ford and turning south, following the course of the Afon Clydach, towards the hamlet of Gwernogle and back towards Keepers Lodge.
