Mynydd Rhiw with its landmark mast and Garn Fadryn
Mynydd Rhiw stands at just 305m, but as with most
hills on the peninsula, it feels higher due to it's
proximity to the sea. This particular hill is
characterised by it's radio mast.
The way to get to this hill that I've described

route follows the track that services the main mast
near the summit. You will see the trig point on a
rocky outcrop to the left of you.
There are paths that cover all of the top of the
hill and lead down to country lanes on all sides,
any of which can form start points for your walk.

to get lost up here.
Take care as there can be hidden rocks under the
