We did this walk during storm Hannah which was a bit sketchy but it’s a beautiful areas with great views from the top, you walk through pretty woodland as well.

Easily accessible and a variety routes to take. Great views along the climb and from the summit. A bit of a rocky climb around the top but nothing too strenuous. Lots of sheep around, so be mindful if walking dogs as I had to put mine on their leads majority of the way.

Lovely walk. We chose the longer, more challenging route that drops down into a wooded valley before ascending Sugar Loaf. Steep in places and a slight scramble to get to the summit but nothing too challenging.

Good, relatively short trail with some great views if it’s a clear day. Some long steep sections though so I wouldn’t class this as easy / suitable for all types as stated. You need to be relatively fit & strong on this route.

Lovely walk and fairly easy if you choose the easiest route. You can make it more difficult by choosing an alternative route to the top. Wonderful views from the top and a very pleasant couple of hours out.

Was a long walk for my children my 3 Yr old 7yr old and 15yr old took us double the time as stated well worth all the effort as it is so beautiful once u reach the top and along the journey to the top could do with a refreshment van when u reach the top as we did run out of drinks and a nice ice cream wouldn't of gone amiss

Took a 4am trek to the summit to watch the sunrise, absolutely stunning!! Met a few sheep along the way too. An amazing walk with some of the best views in Wales
