    Hirfynydd is a hill in Neath Port Talbot county, South Wales. A UK-listed Marilyn, it stands at 1,579 feet (481 m). Sarn Helen, a Roman road, runs along its entire northeast–southwest ridge. The ancient route is now a byway. To its west is Cwm Dulais and to its southeast is the Vale of Neath. The northern end of the ridge falls away to a broad upland vale containing the Afon Pyrddin and the Brecon Beacons beyond.

  • When you go in search of the trig point it's just off the Sarn Helen in amongst a small group of trees. Look carefully and you e will see a path leading to it.
