29 September 09:15-15:45

Drum & Foel-Fras 29th September 2019
Grade: Red Number of dogs allowed: None

From the car park we head North West along the Roman Road for less than 1 km and then turn left to start the accent to Carnedd Doelm and then South to Drum. We will continue along the high level path until we reach the high point Foel-Fras. The route then takes off paths to reach Llyn Anafon a small remote reservoir. We then follow the track down a lovely steep sided valley to the North Wales Path following the Afon Anafon. The return to the start is then along another track heading East.
