Short upland circuit from Cae Ysgubor

On Thursday our Wales Hut warden led a local group on a fine short-ish upland circuit from the doorstep of Cae Ysgubor. It’s only a short stroll from our hut over to nearby Craflwyn Hall, from which there is a fine waymarked path which runs over to the foot of Dinas Emrys and then zig-zags gently up the adjacent valley, with some fine views of Moel Siabod and Nant Gwynant.

We never met a soul, (other than a group of three feral mountain goats!) The path eventually descends to meet the Watkin Path (a well-trodden Snowdon route), down to the car park at Pont Bethania. From there it’s just a short walk back to the hut along the shore of Llyn Dinas. Well worth doing next time you’re down at Cae Ysgubor.
