Narrow lanes means narrow parking options
Short Summary created by wicklore, Fergalh  27 Oct 2020
When on A470 exit at Taffs Well and cross the river to get to the road south of the hill. Parking is very limited here. I was warned, and got here early as it is a popular spot. There is one spot in the trees to the south east and walk the rest of the way. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2299/comment/8304/

A very steep climb from the road to the south below, but wonderful views of Taff's Well and beyond. Many tracks crisscross this hill. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/B2299/comment/21079/
