This walk has some stunning views both to the north towards Moel Siabod and the Snowdon Horseshoe and the South towards the Arenigs. The walking is generally easygoing, however there is a short section around the head of the cwm where it is rather boggy under foot. This is outweighed by the remote feel and amazing outlook, but remember to get some dubbin on yer boots!
