Tracks all the way....
by Fergalh  15 Nov 2020
A steep descent of Moel Y Faen and a steep ascent via tracks leads you to the second of the rounds on this circuit. This is marked by a small cairn with extensive views of the famous horseshoe pass Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2039/comment/21358/

Parking at the Ranch....
by Fergalh  15 Nov 2020
There is extensive parking at the Pondersoa Ranch Bar and Grill even if as a car owner you may feel left out as the bikers frequent this place. Incidentely if popping in after a circuit of the five hills west (or even just One!) when ordering a coffee you have to ask for a 'Sherrif Roy" (those Saturday mornings watching RTE come in handy sometimes!)
