Lakes

Sunday 26th June 2022 - Glasgwm and Aran Fawddwy

        Meet at the Abbey at 08:00. We will start from the parking area at SH 852188, which is at the end of Cwm Cywarch. There are toilets at the T-junction in Dinas Mawddwy, and a portaloo (probably) in the parking area. Travel distance about 55 miles. Suggested donation of 1 each person at car park.
      
        The walk takes us in a clockwise loop, starting with a zig-zag route south-west up to a ridge, leading north to the rarely climbed top of Glasgwm at 779m, past a high-altitude lake. We then head north-east, down to a flat and generally boggy area then gradually up to Aran Fawddwy (905m/2970 ft), which is the highest mountain in the UK south of Snowdon. The descent is gradual and gives us fine views into the steep-sided valley of Hengwm.

       Total walk distance is around 14k/10 ml, with 1030/3400 feet of climbing. We are on mostly decent tracks, and the climbs are fairly gradual; a few rocky bits but no exposure.  Should be around 6-7 hours walking.
