If you really want to get away in the hills, this is a great walk. Facilities in the immediate vicinity are limited (there is car parking but that's about all!). For cafes, toilets etc, you need to go to Bala. The walk climbs steadily on well-defined tracks from good car parking on the road by Llyn Celyn to the summit cairn. There are extensive view across the Arenig and lake. A trig point marks the top and there is a shelter to give some protection from the elements (which is very useful on a cold and blustery winter's day like the day we did this walk).

A couple of miles towards Bala, you can visit the Canoeing Centre on the River Tryweryn. It's always exiting to watch the canoeists negotiating the rocks and falls.

The walk is a linear one. Simply follow the directions on good paths to the summit and reverse your steps for the return.

Although the paths are well-defined, this is a walk in the hills and I would not recommend when visibility is poor (especially for those inexperienced in navigation). Apart from route-finding, if there is fog you will miss the superb views.

Another great walk. The markers again were spot on and very easy to follow. Very quiet, didn't see any other walkers. Brilliant.
