This was an easy half day walk to break up the derive from Yorkshire to Snowdonia. I parked, with a bit of difficulty, opposite the chapel at Rhewl and headed up the road behind it. This turned into a track when it hit access land and contoured round the purple heathery flanks of Moel Gamelin to the top of the pass.
Here I did an up and down again of Moel y Gamelin on the broad path that links all these hills. In places this gets extremely steep and must be a bit nasty in slippery conditions. Straight on over Moel y Gaer and Moel Morfydd with its slowly disintegrating trig point. Then down again via Cymmo. Near Mynydd-buchan I heard the sound of a bell that turned out to the tied around the neck of a remarkably tiny dog wandering about all alone miles from anywhere. When it saw me it rushed towards me, barking ferociously with a view to filling me with fear. I am a pretty easy prey for canine intimidation but it was a really very small dog indeed.
