Circular walk from Aberdare Country park

Started at the parking on the A4061 & headed into the forestry on the southern side of the reservoir to do a circular walk to the trig. Didn't realise that Welsh water are working on the dam so couldn't cross it to get to the other side of the valley. Slight detour to a footpath further along down to a very old stone bridge going over the river. Followed tracks then over the Moor to the trig. Walked to the escarpment then & found a trail leading into the woods & back to the start. Misty & wet.

Walked up from a small parking area called Beili Glas by the A4061. It was rainy and foggy with no views. By the time we got back down to the reservoir the weather was much improved, so we went back up for another look in the sunshine! Lots of wind turbines nearby, and peat bogs with "danger of death" signage, in case you were thinking of taking a shortcut.

Amazing views to the Breacon Beacons. Even better when we walked to Hirwaun Common. Done this one after Mynydd Tynewydd Trig and Lluest-wen res.

Walked from home in Hirwaun because of the lockdown coro19 but by car you can park at the entrance of Mynydd Bwllfa wind farm just opposite the school. Fabulous walk all the way to the trig

Parked in the forestry track entrance at Beili-glas. Followed the track to Nant Rhydrefelen where there's some rough ground to cross before meeting a wind farm track and finally going across to the pillar. Excellent view.

An 8 mile slog for this and Mynydd Tynewydd over rough wet tussocky grass, through a conifer plantation and in and out the wind farm. Not a pleasant walk and wet to my waist after a 'short cut' across Hirwaun Common! Pillar located in open tussock grass approx 1.5m SE of old boundary fencing. No top cap or plug; rear sight hole open. Horizontal fracture one third of the way down extending across front face. Hazy 360deg views.

Came up from Dare Valley Country Park. Very enjoyable, with great views to the Brecon Beacons, which were bathed in sunshine today. We were caught in a heavy shower. Lovely rainbow though.

I parked at start of forest track to the west. Followed track to end of forestry and then as the crow flies. Return journey followed pylons on a good track to the north west, the track turning west along the northern edge of forestry. Visited high point. Continued to the road(A4061) and back to car. The weather has been dry and this return journey was as easy as the forestry route in. In wet weather this would be much more of a slog.

My route to this trig started at the car park/view point at SN9270203094. I followed the road down the hill and went east along the perimeter of the forest. This was hard going because of the swampy & tussocky grass. I came back via the wide forest road starting at SN9429703269. This was longer but easier. I hit the road at SN9229702719 where there is space to park so this would have been a nice place to start. Good views at the trig spoiled by inclement weather. Nice view from SN6464203409 not to be missed.
