Pity the Donkey.
by sandman 10 Apr 2017
From a bygone era the remains of a track exists up to the summit and beyond, so i pity the poor donkey who had to pull the cart up this hill but if he did get a breather at the summit he would have been rewarded with good views. Today take the tarred road at A (C51941 53449) up to its end now pass thru the gate and parking is available at Gl'gad W (C50821 53137) ,there are no issues with access, now choose your own way up to the top or follow in the donkey's footsteps.
