Come prepared for tough weather conditions and stay on the main tracks and off the ridge if very windy and poor visibility. This is a good challenging hike and circuit route.

The trail was awesome!!! 5 peaks and back along the western ridge, long trek, weather was to be expected....rain and sunshine, hard in places due to the climbs but all in all good fun

My wife and I walked this less than a month ago and the weather was good with a little wind at the highest points we walk penyfan etc regularly so although it was said to be a 4-6 hour walk (depending on your ability) we comfortably walked it in 4,1/2 hours although I'm sure in worse weather it would be more like 5 hours very good views would highly recommend this trail

First to Review

We walked this route in reverse due to weather forecast. it's a very hard route if you are not good at climbing. I prefer to start the circuit at the reservoir. Early March and we had snow. Almost a white out at times.
