Member's Comments on Craig y Llyn...

  • Nick Wakelam says...
  • Plenty of parking options to east along A4061. We parked at entrance to the new wind farm site at SN921025. Kind chap at site security office let Jacqdaw use his loo. Lots of good paths and tracks to summit; although felling and replanting means even current OS map is out of date. Fantastic views to north of large number of major Beacon's peaks from viewpoint just north of trig.
