Best Guidebook Walks 2 – The Moelwynion Details
This is the Steve Ashton Moelwynion Ridge walk featured in our article on My Favourite Guidebook Walks.
Setting off from Dolwyddelan, he takes the route up via the forest and to Llyn y Foel, Daear Ddu and follows the route around to Allt Fawr, before recalling how he managed to get a lift to the start from this point. I’ve done all of this walk, but not the single walk he did that day. Ironically, when I did descend to the Crimea, we also managed to get an unexpected lift to here we started!
The route could be improved by continuing onwards over the outlying Moel Farlwyd, Penamnen and finally Y Ro Wen before descending to Dolwyddelan. A longer walk, but much better on the feet than six kilometres of tarmac.
Dave also established Walk up Snowdon, Walk up Scafell Pike and Walk up Ben Nevis just to mention a few.
