Mynydd Dimlaith is a small 224m high hill just above Llanbradach. It can be walked from a number of different directions as the area is riddled with public footpaths. I decided to park up near the communications tower on top of the ridgeway to walk this short loop.
Starting with broad views of surrounding valleys and open tracks, you move into some classic country walking, zig-zagging down towards Mynydd Dimlaith.
The track takes you up to the highest point of Mynydd Dimlaith – which is essentially just brambles and small trees – but the walk to complete the loop is through lightly wooded areas, covered in bluebells.
The paths are easy to follow and some of the best I’ve walked in the area as they have trees / plants aplenty as opposed to the moor open moorlands on most ridgeways.
A really good track, just beware the Mynydd Dimlaith is nice to look at, but not much pleasure in ascending as you can’t see much due to tree cover.
