About this event

Powys Ramblers member Graham will lead this strenuous, 11 mile walk in the upper Elan Valley. Following the road, the walk heads up to the Nant Cletwr Valley onto Esgair Crawnllwyn and Carn Richet where there are scenic views of the reservoir and the surrounding hills. Walking along the Monk’s Trod (and the ancient Roman Road), the route descends to Pont ar Elan and up the mountain road to the Pillow Mounds. Climbing steadily to the ancient Carn-wen and Carn Nant-y-ffald, the walk leads to rough round at Cerri Llwydion, drops back down to the mountain road and skirts the north side of Gaufron. Walking eastwards of the reservoir, the route passes the lovely little Lan Wen bothy before continuing beside the reservoir back to the start of the walk. Meet at Craig Goch car park SN895687.
