Parked next to the shop in Cynwyd (no restrictions on sundays) and followed the Nuttall route East with a spur up to Liberty Hall to take in Bryn llus, from here I pressed on to Moel Fferna, along the ridge taking in Cerrig Coediog and Cefn Perfedd before arriving at the Nuttall top of Moel yr Henfaes, from here I followed the hills over Y Drum and the Dewey Moel yr Henfaes. If your lucky when striking out for the last top you'll walk over a grassy track heading North East which will take you back to Cynwyd forest albeit having to cross a grazing field at 07959 39525 to access the forest tracks that you follow left back to the car. Fourteen and half mile in Six and quarter hours.WAYNE ROWLETT09/05/2021
With Meal Ffearna. With B and R.jenx22/09/2020
The 8 summits around Cynwyd Forest anti-clockwise with Rufus. Parked at far end of reservoir and took forest track to open hillside, used a mixture of fences and rough tracks for navigation but plenty of the round is in deep heather. A good logical round for the northern Berwyn and took just over 4 hours at a fast pace - 16km 700m ascent.jacobrichmond01/09/2020

From a wild camp on Bronwen en route to Moel Fferna. A very hot early morning walk through the bogs made for exhausting going but the sense of wilderness was invigorating.Jake99405/05/2018
From Moel Fferna on circuit. Mound by side of path W of fence. Continued to Cefn Perfedd, ground frozen which was good for boggy bits but awkward underfoot where it was churned up.Aye Jimmy24/02/2018

Continuing from Moel Fferna. Quality of track gets worse as the route goes on. Keep to the right of the fence (from North) as the route is considerably better.muzza228/06/2015

Bryn Llus, Pen Creigiau'r Barcut, Cerrig Coediog, Pen y Lladron, Moel yr Henfaes (Nuttall) Y Drm, moel yr Henfaes (Dewey). Good paths and tracks most of the way.ijpowell31/07/2014
My third summit of the Day, having climbed Pen y Vivod and Pen Tan-Y-Craig. From the Track that leads South into Ceiriog forest, I took a forest track heading West that I had identified on the OS map as snaking through the forest and then out onto the moorland all the way to the fenceline so that I had only to turn left (southwest)and followed the fenceline, with a few false summits till I got to the last high point of Cerrig Coediog, where after the land falls away (until Moel Henfaes East top) The Track made walking so much easier whereas the next top to Pen Creigiau'r Barcut was a slog through heather and bilberry. As mentioned earlier there are occasional drops using the fenceline so just be alert to them.Dazingdale04/05/2014
From Cynwyd, a round of Bryn-llus, Pen Creigiau'r Barcut, Moel Ffarna, Cerrig Coediog, Pen y Lladron, Moel yr Henfaes [Pen Bwlch Llandrillo Top], Y Drum and Moel yr Henfaes. A nice horseshoe for this area.rhalstead07/04/2014
