Carnyrhyrddod-Cambrian-Mountains

Our next walk is coming up on 10 June, with Red Liford leading a circular walk around the old mining remains of Ysbyty Ystwyth.  The walk will cover steep, rough grassland and some minor roads while visiting Pen glog-Fawr, the high point of Trawsallt (570m), Llan ddu Fawr and Cwm Gwyddyl.   Despite our image (above), we don’t expect to see snow on the ground!

looking over Llyn Teifi toward Trawasallt just after dawnStarting at 10 am from the layby on the B434 south of Ysbyty Ystwyth, we’ll cover a total distance 9.5 miles and elevation gain of around 1,000 ft.  Red is an exception naturalist and -if prompted – can point out the plants, insects and birds which can be seen or heard on the route – a chance to learn more about the make-up of the Cambrians’ relatively unspoilt ecosystems.

We should be back at the start point around 2pm allowing for lunch and frequent stops at the points of interest.  If you’re interested to come along, please let Red know in advance. His phone number is given in the Members’ email notice of the walk.
