Dinefwr Ramblers

Carmarthenshire

Maenclochog 24 June 2018

Sixteen of us, with no dogs, left the car park at Maenclochog (pretty car park with flower boxes on the picnic tables maintained by the local residents) for a short road walk before turning off onto a track which led us onto a boardwalk. The boardwalk led through a wood which was eerie enough to be used in a suspense drama as a film set!

A walk through open moorland which was reasonably flat before we ascended up towards the trig point which was a fairly stiff climb given the temperature and the cloudless sky. However, the further we climbed the more spectacular the view became with a stunning 360 degree view at the top.

After lunch at the trig point we descended down towards Rosebush passing old quarries, quarry worker’s house and various office buildings. When we got to Rosebush we decided to stop at Tafarn Sinc for a drink. Enthusiasm for continuing the walk back to Maenclochog was dwindling as we sat out in the sunshine but we had to get back to the cars.

This was a very enjoyable walk which was led at a good pace considering the weather conditions. The views were certainly worth the effort. Thank you Janice for an excellent walk.
