Distance: 3.5 miles (5km)
Ascent: 301 metres
Start/finish: Llanwenarth car park, NP7 7LA

From the car park take the main path north-west up the first small hill to bring Sugar Loaf properly into view. Bear L past the corner of the fields and follow the path around to the slightly less steep and more runnable south-western face of Sugar Loaf itself. Climb the hill to the trig point and summit (1.7 miles/2.7km), following the ridge to the rocks at its end for the best views. Return to the trig point and turn R, following the path down the main face, and trending R to avoid Cwm Trosnant. Run around the head of this cwm and curve L along the ridge of Mynedd Llanwenarth before turning R and returning to the start.
