A lovely walk with panoramic views. A slight elevation to a plateau beneath Craig Arthur and onto World’s End. Good footing throughout.

Must walk such a lovely place

The Daear Ddu route is my preferred route, because it’s more challenging in terms of a steeper ascent than if you were to start at Plas y Brenin. You can do the hard part first and enjoy a leisurely descent. It’s also more enjoyable because of varied scenery. I enjoyed a picnic at the top on a clear day and the views are excellent. Lakes, woodland, mountains: perfect.

Beautiful place, amazing circuit easy to follow hard to get lost!

lovely walk, shame about all the dog mess bags lost count of how many I seen just thrown everywhere.

I liked this trail. Mostly ready going because you're already at the top of the mountain but with one or two bits to get the heart pumping. Good views of Caerphilly and, at one point, a great view of Cardiff and St Mellons. About 3.5-4 hours with a 10 year old in tow. Several lunch spots along the way.

This was a lovely trail with plenty of options to diverse away from the route. The views were breathtaking!

Really poorly sign posted, you cannot complete this walk without having to check your phone at all times. Lovely views however and a great walk

Great trail, nice and green with beautiful views of the River Usk. Definitely a favourite in the area.

I loved the walk, especially after I bent a wheel and had the chance to push my bike all the way back, really enabled me to see the great views!

Great trail, a little tricky if you can’t lift your dog over most styles/ they can jump them(luckily ours can jump anything!). Section closed due to footbridge being washed away but we managed to get through anyway! Lots of lovely and different scenery!

We took the PYG trail up to the summit and then came down along the Miners Track. This way was really nice as the Miners track is relatively flat most of the way but then is very steep and scrambly up to the summit. So coming back down the miners is much easier than going up it. The PYG track is challenging in some places with climbing across rocks and some icy steps. Please make sure you have suitable footwear! At the summit the wind was unbelievable, if you faced it for too long you couldn’t breathe properly and it would also blow you over! Many people lost hats and gloves here. Beautiful walk but don’t underestimate it.

More HARD than moderate! But Beautiful, buttt no clear trail (used the app the whole time) and nearly timed it wrong on the way back it was taking a while to get back down as we went down a different path by accident. Wasn’t easy figuring out the route beware! Possibly took us around 4/5 ish hours (had a big group and some slow walkers) . My favourite hike in North Wales.
