Nice walk through the forest to the trig. Sad to see a little rubbish at the pillar and graffiti scrawled over it. Beautiful views from up here.

parked at SS 7616590611, nice sunny day. followed the welsh coast path up, very steep tarmac road followed by steep incline up steps to the top, followed until crossroads with the path that runs up to the trig, which is about 200 metres from main path through a smaller path which cuts through brambles and gorse. lovely views over Swansea bay to the south west, north east is Foel fynyddau, and north west is Darren wen.

Path just about discernable though first bit through the gorse is a bit nasty!

Parked at end of lane due west of trig where a footpath goes into woodland. Followed path then doubles back on itself uphill. Then a track leaves the footpath and takes a direct route up the hillside. A bit of a slog but a quicker way up.

Parked at Cwmafan with PROWs to within 200m or so of the trig. Doesn't seem to be public access thereafter, but good tracks and plenty of dog walkers about. Pillar generally in good condition but with number of hair fractures and covered in graffiti. Cap missing, asphalt plug; rear sight hole only one open. Views S to sea, but not Port Talbot due to broadness of hill summit; W to Swansea and coastline; N and E to hills.

Parked at SS 76002 92648 for a slight detour of a walk up to the trig point to take in the views over Port Talbot. Trig point has grafitti on every face dating back to 2000.

Parked in Aberavon before walking up the side of the river and road to Cwmavan. Through the estate then minor roads to Foel Fynyau trig then bach and along roads and tracks to this trig. Lost the track for the last 200 meters in but found it again after I found the trig. No views today only mist.

Well graffitied; good views from path 100m away. Approach from Brynbryddan probably not the best!

I also parked in the same spot as earlier logs. Hillside recently burnt again. Black and charred and a strong smell of ash. Trigpoint covered in graffiti, badly cracking and chipped.

Sounds like I parked in the same spot as mickandshane paths are a bit of a mess though with some of the tracks more visible than the official footpath. easier once you get onto the top pasture areas though. Trig still in good shape but now resprayed a a fluorescent green that also appears as markers in places at the top of the route. Good view point but too hazy today

We parked south east of the trig on a street which is separated from the M4 by a large retaining wall. The paths quite straightforward then, although it's a bit of a hike. The 1998 Explorer map I've got shows the area as being wooded, but the trees are all gone, only charred stumps remaining. This means you get excellent views of the new gas-fired power station at Baglan Bay, where I spent many hours when it was being built. Tarmac/concrete plug.
