The walk is based on the National Trust car park at Graig Fawr, which is an important nature reserve with many scarce plants. There is a steep climb up to the top of Moel Hiraddug to visit the hill-fort and savour the landscape spread out below and the hills of Snowdonia in the distance. Part of Offa's Dyke National Trail is followed through pastures before a final stretch on a disused railway line.

A very enjoyable walk though the steep climb just after the start of this walk is certainly for those who favour "ascente rapide". The views from the top were excellent - over the coast and down the valley. The descent is also quite rapid. The section between WM19 and WM20 which runs along the former railway were quite wet today (even after a dry spell) and may be very tricky after wet weather. There appears to be a possible alternative right of way a little to the north of the river - though I didn't try it.
