Belying the grim reputation of the area, rather a nice first taste of the Berwyns. (Note that only about 3 or 4 cars can park near the start of this route though).
Steeply up to Mynydd Tarw and then along the undulating and only occasionally wet Foel Wen ridge. The summit route(Craig Berwyn to Moel Sych) itself and the descent to Moel yr Ewig afterwards is really good walking - long views, pleasant underfoot, steep surrounds - even if the descent over Godor is more featureless and marshy. No R-O-W but a well-enough-worn route through the pastures back to the start.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
