Sunday 24th April 2016 - Dyfi Hills

    This walk includes  the 2 summits of  Maesglase, the highest of the Dovey Hills, Craig Portas,  Cribin Fawr and Cribin Fach. 

    The circular route starts from a layby on the A470 Dinas Mawddwy to Dolgellau road (SH 826163), and initially follows footpaths East through fields and lanes along Cwm Cerist, parallel with the A470. Then a SSW direction is taken up the Maesglase valley with views of Cwm Maesglase and its waterfall.  Craig Maesglase is followed in a NW direction with a crossing of the infant Nant Maesglase  just above the waterfall.  Maesglase first top is reached and then follows its second top and the other hills mentioned above.  A fairly steep descent is made from Cribin Fawr to the A470 and the final kilometre is along the verges of the road back to the layby start.

    16 kilometres (10 miles)  Ascent 882 metres (2,890 feet).
