My final overnighter before the TGO took me to the Berwyns in Wales, for a 34 mile (55 km) overnight trek taking in the main high points of the range; Cadair Berwyn 830 metres (2,723 ft) , Moel Sych 827 metres (2,713 ft) and Cadair Bronwyn 784 metres (2,572 ft) .
The Berwyns are a favourite of mine. Being far less popular than their Snowdonia neighbours, there’s few better places within easy reach on a bank holiday weekend to get away from the crowds and have the mountains all to yourself. Once away from the valley bottom I met only two people in the hills over the two days. Bliss.
