Overview

Starting at Coed Llwyn-celyn car park, we head across fields to the site of the old Cefn Mabley Hospital, now a housing estate. Cutting through the estate, we walk through Cefn Mabley woods and on to Rudry Road passing the site of an ancient hill fort. We then negotiate the lower slope of Craig Llysfaen to return to our starting point.
