Situated in the southernmost part of the Snowdonia National Park are the lovely, little-walked Tarren Hills which run down to the sea at Aberdovey. Separated from Cader Idris by the Dysynni Valley and Tal-y-llyn, and from Plynlimon by the Dovey, this compact range of hills provides some excellent crowd-free walking – notably along the fine ridge that extends for several miles in a southwest direction from the Tarrens’ highest point, Tarren y Gesail (667m/2188ft). This exhilarating, linear route keeps to the open slopes, with an ascent of Tarrenhendre from the south to start, then along the ridge back to Aberdovey. On a fine day, the extensive views are superb.
