Easily accessible. We parked in gateway and walked up track. Trees all around but the trig is in a clearing.

This was a great spot! A quick walk up the hill and this is easy to spot, and the panoramic views on this beautiful summer evening were fantastic. Trig is in good order complete with plug.

Nice

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

I was driving from south to north wales when I went up a hill and though there is bound to be a trig point up here. Got out the GPS and found there was one within 300meters so scampered off up the track. I was even hoping it was a Marilyn that I hadn't visited. Dab news though when I got home to find that that it was not a Marilyn but its aslo a trig I have visited before. Never mind. I needed to stretch my legs.

In mid-Summer this TP gives magnificent views to mountains on three sides and over the sea on the fourth side. The evening of my recent visit was cloudy, but still a glorious sunset! But get there quckly for the conifers that surround it are growing fast and soon it will be enclosed for more than a decade with brown wood and pine needles.

Trig stands on one of three tumuli on Trychrug. Looking South West from the trig Castell Perthi-mawr an Iron Age Hill Fort can be seen on a clear day.

Situated in a pine forest that has been felled in the area of the trig so no problem finding it. Trig was originally numbered s1587 but was later rebuilt. Plug with raised lettering.
