IThe Dyfi Hills are among Snowdonia’s southernmost mountains. Their grassy tops and steep northern escarpments look so enticing from the A458 between Dinas Mawddwy and Dolgellau. Yet despite this, few ever make the effort to climb to their summits. This could of course, be a good thing; as walking across Maesglase, the highest of the range, is a little like going back in time 20 years. The paths, where they do exist, are twisting and narrow; and the summits lack the sprawling cairns, built by the masses ‘just adding a stone’ that crown most of more popular peaks.
