General information

This is an afternoon walk on the first day of 4 days walking The Heart of Wales walking trail.

It will be a 5.5 mile moderate afternoon walk starting at Knucklas.

The start of this section is the remotest of the north end of this trail and the highest too, reaching 480 metres.

We start with a rise up the hillside on a path leading up to Knucklas Castle.

The Castle was built in the early 13th century. There is a sculpture called Dragon's Tooth with a 360 degree view from this point.

It follows a ridge between Knucklas and Lloyney before climbing in earnest up to Wernygeufron Hill.

The plan is to get a lift back to Knucklas from the ridge.
