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 go4awalk “Wild Walk” taking in eight summits, the highest being Aran Fawddwy (a Hewitt, a Nutall and a Marilyn) at 905m it is the highest point in Wales south of Snowdon. Hopefully with glorious views while being gloriously quiet.

This is a long walk with too many changes of direction to list.
