I set out to follow this walk on SAT 26th August. The landscaping and footpaths in this area have undergone many changes in the last few years. A large amount of the forest has been removed due to the felling of diseased larch trees, because of this new roads have been built and all the signs and lots of stiles have disappeared. You can't follow this walk as described, it just doesn't work. You can still walk, but you will have to start from scratch and plot your own route. Watch out for the Bike routes, there are lots of cyclists and some routes are only suitable for bikes. I'm glad this was my free trial walk and not one I had paid for!

We have done this excellent walk several times but as an earlier comment suggests the path between WP5 and WP6 has become increasingly overgrown. Last time, in 2013, with considerable difficulty we climbed up through the undergrowth but today decided this was not possible. We decided to continue on the forest track to a T-junction at SS985979 where we turned sharp left almost back on ourselves. We then followed this wide forest track ignoring all turns to a meeting of tracks at SS860987 where we took the first left, the bridleway, again almost back on ourselves. This took us past WP6 from where we continued the walk. This increased the length to 11.8 miles but involved no loss of height.

It's a great walk with some lovely scenary. My wife and I did it on 14th November and using my SATMAP gps it recorded the distance as 11.2 miles and we followed the route exactly. At waypoint 5 stick to the Coed Morgannwg Way markers because the route suggested does not really exist as the track described is overgrown with pine saplings and is virtually impassable. Proper walking boots recommended too as you are walking on a lot of loose rock which was flowing with water when we did the walk.
