Either park at the farm where there is a parking charge or find the
lay-by about 800 metres east of the farm and walk back up the road; watch
out for traffic though it is busy. The latter will take you past the
rather strange 'Elvis
Rock' as well.
After parking head for the farm yard entrance then turn right between the farm buildings, you will probably be met by some barking dogs in a shed. Continue through the other side and go straight ahead towards a gate ignoring the track on the left over a cattle grid (you will return that way). Then just follow the track as it winds up with a stream on the right hand side. Eventually the incline levels out a bit and after about a mile and a quarter you will see some old mine workings on your right. The Cambrian mountains were famous at one time for their lead and silver mines. There are various old bits of mine equipment around as well as, no doubt, a few places to injure yourself if you don't take care exploring.
Look for the footpath sign on the left and then turn off the stone track and follow the path up to the ridge. At the top there is a ladder style over the fence to the summit itself with spectacular views and Nant yr Moch reservoir in front of you. Once you have finished on the summit go back over the stile and turn right and follow the path down the fence line which eventually becomes a well defined grass path.
Once you get near the conifer plantation you can see in the distance the track becomes stone again and after passing a solitary telecommunications tower it turns east near the plantation and drops down to some farm sheds in the distance.
Follow it down past the sheds and eventually you will be back at the farm where you started.
