Just under 2 miles out-and-back from parking area next to Llyn Dubach, walked past danger sign on gate up track to old quarry area, as track turns and just after barbed wire fence appears on the right there is a little trail to the summit cairn, surprisingly good views for a hill of its size, then walked back to the car via easy short ascent of Carreg Y Foel-Gron. Clear and sunny with a breeze, no one about. Earlier that day did an 8 mile walk on Foel Ddu, Moel-Yr-Hydd, Moelwyn Mawr, Craigysgafn and Moelwyn Bach.DanTrig12/07/2020
