This is a new mapped area, which Robert Griffiths did back in 2014. It is mostly openrunnable hillside containing many contour and rock features to aid navigation.It is completely fenced in. The main marshes are mapped. At this time of year anywhere can be wet. Whistles and cagoules may be required to be carried by all.

Location & Directions

The location is easily found on the A4120 between Ponterwyd and Devils Bridge, just a few minutes off the A44 east of Aberystwyth. Parking will be signed and please aim to arrive in good time for a start between 10.30 and 11.30 as there is a 20 minute walk to the start point. There may be restrictions for parking at the church car park at Ysbyty Cynfyn depending on whether there is a service or not. This would involve an extra 350m walk - cross the road, through the pedestrian gate opposite, turn immediately left and follow inside the field against the roadside fence.

Info for dog owners

Please note we have been asked not to take dogs out on the course because it is tupping time (sheep breeding with ram). Dogs will be allowed within the camping/parking field, which is about 100m x 150m. If you want to take your dog for a longer walk you can take them into the woods which are to the far east side of the area.


No facilities
