Follow cart track through woods downhill to reach Lon Maes Garmon.
Left along tarmac farm road towards Maes Garmon Farm. Look for footpath sign over bridge and stile on left at bend just before farm buildings.
Over this stile then immediate right through gap in raggedy hedge. Walk diagonally right and upwards under overhead cables across field to a stile visible in boundary with woodland below skyline. Over this stile
Follow path zig-zagging down through woodland. At first, the path is not so distinct especially when there are leaves on the ground - progress generally forwards and downwards until the path straightens out and is more clearly marked.
Look out for a stile and field boundary at far edge of the woodland and a small planked bridge. Immediate left once over the stile. Then head straight on following edge of woods to right.
Continue towards the main road and a stile in the far right hand corner of field by a house.
Then left along main road towards Gwernaffield taking care where pavement narrows. On reaching Gwernaffield look out for footpath sign on left hand side of road opposite church and alongside a play area.
Follow this path through past a tall leylandi hedge. It emerges onto the small estate. Follow the circular estate road either to the left or right to find a continuation of the footpath on the opposite side.
This time the path emerges at a stile at the top of a field. Turn left and head diagonally downhill. Over a stile through a big hedge.
Head slightly right across next field to a stile which is located in the bottom corner at the left hand edge of the white bungalow.
Down and then up some old steps to cross the small stream alongside a house at what looks like an ancient pathway.
Keep to the fight hand edge of the next field towards the obvious stile in the bottom corner. Finally head diagonally and right upwards across the next field to a stone stile below a pole.
Turn right up the track once over the stone stile to join the Hafod Road. Turn left here and continue to join the Weary Willy walk at its point.
