From the car park, walk up onto the main road. At the junction, cross the road and carry along the street in front, Troed-y-Rhiw Road. Take the second exit on your right up a steep tarmac lane. This lane continues at a steep incline until you reach the boarding kennels and farm.
Continue on the path through the farm and through the gate at the other side. You are now at the start of the dreaded Graze Lane! This grassy, rocky lane is very steep and take care as it is uneven under foot and can be muddy. It’s only a short walk to the top. Stop to catch your breath at the tree on the corner and admire the view so far.
Once you reach the top of Graze Lane, turn left and continue on the forestry road. The views along this road are well worth the climb of Graze Lane!
At the corner there is a lot of dead wood left from the tree felling. If you walk up onto the mound the views of the valley are pretty amazing.
Once your back on the forestry road, the road turns around on itself. Keep following the road for the next half a mile. The forestry track then bears off to the left where you turn back on yourself again. Continue on this track which loops around the hill. The trig pillar is at the end of the track at the summit of the hill, next to the mast. There are some rocks on the bank over looking the town. Great for a photo opportunity or a rest, before you retrace the route back down.
