Cardigan Bay from Foel Gron.

Foel Gron, or as the people of Mynytho call it, the Foel, is a rounded hill lying to the west of the village, giving superb views of Abersoch, St. Tudwal's Islands and Porth Neigwl/Hell's Mouth. The heather here in late summer is beautiful. The car park at the base of the hill has public toilets and picnic benches.

From the car park take the steps that start to make their way up the hill, the path then splits into two. Continue straight on for the slightly less steep route, where you will need to turn right at the next path junction to head for the summit. If you turn right at the first junction then this path links up with another path higher up the hill. Neither paths are very even and both are fairly steep.

There is a cairn and information post on the summit - where you can take in the stunning views all around you. You can extend your walk further along Mynytho common by carrying on straight across the summit and down a steep path on the other side of the hill. There are a variety of paths to follow, heading roughly to the right will eventually bring you to a straight lane, if you turn right on this lane and carry straight on you will find yourself back at the start.
