1. From the car park A cross the main road B to follow the minor road opposite signposted Cwm Maethlon/Happy Valley C for approximately 1.2 miles ignoring any turnings until you reach a white house on the R where the road swings L. For an optional extension to visit a stone circle continue steeply up the track immediately to the L of the white house for around 1 km through 2 Gs. The track eventually levels out and the circle D lies 150m beyond a third G on a rocky shelf above and to the R of the track. Return the same way.

2. Just before the white house at a FP sign on the L go through a G and follow the grassy track keeping the fence on your R. Go through a G, then immediately R through another to follow the L fence to another G. Through this with an old barn on your R. Walk across the field past a telegraph pole to go through a black G into the woodland. Keep fence on L, on along and down through a G. Walk down the field and where it opens out head diagonally L
and through a metal G into woodland. Cross the FB and through another black G to follow a wide grassy path through the conifer trees, keeping straight on at a fork until you reach a tarmac road. Turn L to the main road.

3. Turn R and carefully cross the main road to the entrance of Cefn Crib caravan park. Follow this tarmac track and where it bends R, take the first G on the L and follow the track to a junction then turn L. When the track bends L towards a G, keep on following the lower edge of the woodland through a kissing G. Follow the fence and bank on the L until you cross a FB and head up to the kissing G in the L corner of the field.

4. Turn L along the road back to the start
