Sunday 5th July 2015 - Moel Penamnen


     This is a walk of some 16 miles through varied scenery and over a range of paths. Starting from the attractive Quarry Village of Cwm Penmachno we pass through an enclosure of vocal hens before a brief but steep ascent alongside a plantation. Part way up we follow a faint track to the west before heading roughly north to the summit of Y Ro Wen. From here a clear track is followed down to Dolwyddelan.
    A track close to the railway leads to Bertheos from where the ascent to Moel Penamnen commences. Dropping down we proceed west to Llynnau Ballwyd Resevoir with its impressive stone dam and then head south along a good track before turning east towards the remains of quarries. The last few miles are easy walking utilising both Railway and Inclines (Disused).
Earlier in June the puddles in the cuttings were alive with large tadpoles.
