Parked in the Llwyn Celyn Forest Walk car park and made my way up to the ridge via footpaths marked on the 1:25 OS map without any issues. Lovely views on a clear, hot July day across Cardiff and the South Wales coast.

Pleasant stroll up on good paths from the Llwyn Celyn Forestry Commission car park. Pillar has some chipping to top edges; no top cap/plug; RHD side sight hole open. Extensive but misty views to N, S & W, a little limited to NE.

Road to west and in N-S direction narrow, pot-holed and in a generally poor state (driveable but concerning!). For the sake of your car, the distance on poor road is shorter from the N.

I approached from Tai-mawr farm to the southeast with plenty deep snow to contend with once again. I followed a line of pheasant feeder tanks straight up the steep slope through the trees. There was a thigh deep drift at the first fence which took quite some getting through. After that I was personally shepherded to the top of the hill by a half dozen sheep that considerably cleared a path for me most of the way to the trig. If it wasnt for the noise of the M4 I could have imagined that I was somewhere in the depths of Mid Wales. I returned the same way Id came, this time with a fraction of the effort.

Lisvane Hill almost snowed in

A grey clag hangs over Cardiff so the view is a bit dingy and spoilt by the nearby mast a bit. Trig is just over fence but top strand of barbed wire has been removed so not too difficult to get over fence as clearly several had before. Nice avenue of old trees alongside the bridleway on the ridge made a pleasant walk. Came up from Llwyn Celyn car park to east which was appropriate as we started from Llwyn y Celyn youth hostel in the morning.

Parked at the forest car park below and enjoyed a woodland walk up to trig, passing some beautiful old beech trees just before the trig. Views must be splendid on a clear day.

Fantastic views today for the time of year. Cardiff and the Severn are clearly visible to the south and southeast, whilst there are contrasting views of the hills to the north for the nearby path. The makeshift stile looks as though it's there specifically for access to the trig! Now if only that was always the case.

Drizzly day, so background to pillar does not do justice to views. Number on flush bracket appears distorted from original casting.

Used Etrex Legend (s/w 3.7 & 2m reported accuracy) to record waypoint in decimal degrees (WGS84) then converted using OSTN02. Input N51.55877 W3.16996 268m. Output 318990.582E 185080.822N 216.756m hence ST1899185081. Strangely, the actual error seems to be 3m despite a 2m reported error. Very good panoramic views. With the sun in the south west I could only see TP4433, TP5028, TP5015, & TP1824 from here. I need to revisit here in the summer with the sun high in the sky, as I am sure the view will be splendid then.

I accessed this from the Cardiff side of the hill via Lisvane up Graig Road. Beware, there are no parking spaces up the top of Graig Road. Park at the bottom before it severely narrows. The trig is easily found just off the track. It has great views over Cardiff and the Bristol Channel. It now shares its view with the obligatory phone mast. It got me wondering whether future generations would go phone mast bagging. That would be sad.
