Gerald Murphy hiked on June 2nd, 2012 [from/via/route] Dolwyddelan bus stop, past the church, following a path after the railway bridge to the South and into a valley. This leads eventually, having crossed some man made forest tracks, to a steep path up to a ladder stile at the edge of the forest. turning to the right and keeping fairly close to the forest fence I crossed a second stile and climbed Y Foel Fras (586m), descended and climbed Moel Penamnen (620m). I then descended to the Llynau Farlwydd (one is kept empty now as a sacrificial flood plain to protect the Llechwedd slate quarry). This took me, via the edge of the lake up to the County Boundary fence which i followed to Moel Farlwydd (577m). I then took the quarry road back to the Llechwedd quarry and returned to Blaenau Ffestiniog. [with] alone [weather] Sunny, light wind, warm - Two big points. On leaving the ladder stile at the edge of the forest, take great care heading for the next stile. On the day in question the ground was soft following a dry spell but, the next time I walked this way after walking via Y Ro Wen, I returned via the outer edge of the forest to the same stile but, crossing the soft ground to the next stile I suddenly dropped into a bog above my knees and had real problems getting myself out by using my trekking pole as a way of spreading my upper body weight acvross the slightly firmer ground behind me and, with great difficulty, extracting one leg from the bog before I could lift the other leg. Point two is that the public are not allowed to use the quarry road back to the quarry - which I didn't realise until I got back to the quarry and, climbing over the final gate, saw the No Trespassers sign!

Paul Booth and Trevor Williams have both walked, climbed & bagged Moel Penamnen.
