These were three Marilyns I wanted to do on the way up to North Wales.
Garreg Lwyd: This a few miles north of Rhayader and you can park at its base right by the A470. It’s the entrance gate to a wind turbine service road (on the right heading north). There is a sign saying no parking but I parked on the other side of the cutting/sign.
The hike...simple enough, head steeply uphill on the un-metalled service road and after about 1.5kms you go over a cattle grid. After 2kms hang a right on another service road. Of course there are turbines everywhere by now!
You go about another km and then head off country on indistinct paths upto the high ground to the right. You have to climb over a fence and then just go to the obvious high point. There is no set summit point. Then simply retrace your route.
Route Summary: Easy track hike with a bit of cross country. The views of the mid wales valleys are somewhat okay to middling!
Route Statistics: A 5km hike with 240m of height gain done in 61 minutes.
NB:Cefn Cenarth is an an adjacent valley.
