Foel Hafod-fynydd translated into English means "bare hill the mountain summer dwelling" standing at 2260ft above sea-level and a subsidiary summit of Aran Fawddwy in south snowdonia.
starting the walk we followed the river Dyfi at this point is a stream and to the tarran of Creiglyn Dyfi the source of the river Dyfi, which sits at the bottom of Aran Fawddwy which was on route to the summit to Foel Hafod-fynydd.
This walk is is mind blowing spectacular with Aran Fawddwy at the end of the valley and Foel Hafod-fynydd to our right the length of the valley, heading to Creiglyn Dyfi. the ground is unforgiving hard to walk on as its boggy and a few crossing of the stream needed. please note walking this route is at your own risk,there is no phone signal in the area due to the remoteness in these mountains and great care is needed in the mountains
