Covid-19

Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.
Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.

A beautiful walk which follows the line of the 4 LLantysilio Moel summits on good paths, offering excellent views, returning along contour paths over grazing land.
Leaving the car park, we climb SW past a quarry to the first hill top, Moel y Faen. Dropping down before climbing to Moel y Gamelin, the route then heads steeply down W before reaching Moel y Caer. We continue SW to the last climb, Moel Morfydd. The descent continues on good tracks W to join a bridleway leading NW over farmland to pass north of the quarry back to the car park.
