The area offers lots of contrasting terrain, with truly stunning views across the Dyfi Estuary. Runnability on the hillside is mixed, with some fast slope running and contour, crag, rock and marsh detail. All courses visit the grassy, sheep-cropped fields and with 2 small reservoirs bordering the hillside, as well as some old mine workings and shafts in the area. The shafts are fenced but the ruins are unfenced and care needs to be taken in their vicinity.
