From the coast path walking East: after passing Carregwastad Point, the coast path descends to the wooded valley of Cwm Felin. When you come up out of the valley, there's this signpost by a stile and gate (click to enlarge):
Follow that footpath inland across 3 fields. Walk through Llanwnda, passing the church on your left and the farm on your right; continue 80m up the road, then up the track on the right signposted Garn Gron / Garn Fach.
From the coast path walking West: after passing Penfathach (a reef jutting out to sea), look for this signpost
(click to enlarge):
Follow the path inland (it can be wet, but there are stepping stones) to Cilau Farm. Leave the farm to your left, join the road and soon turn right onto the footpath beside a house. Follow the path across a couple of fields to Llanwnda. In Llanwnda, turn left and walk about 80m up the road, then up the track on the right signposted Garn Gron / Garn Fach.
Follow this path up. When it reaches a gravel track, go straight across up the unmarked path, ignoring the sign to the right. At a farmyard, turn left through the metal gate:
Llanwnda Stables to the crossroads. Go straight across onto the road to Llanwnda passing the cemetery on your left. Follow the road downhill to the right. Take the track on your left; after passing "Ymyl y Graig", Garn Fach will be in front of you. Allow 30-40 minutes from Goodwick.

If coming via the M4, go to the end of the motorway and continue on the A48 to Camarthen, then the A40 to Haverfordwest and Fishguard.
Follow the signs to the Fishguard-Rosslare ferry (at the end of the A40). At the ferry terminal entrance roundabout, take the exit before the ferry into Goodwick.
At the t-junction in the village, turn left up the hill (quite steep!), signposted Llanwnda and Strumble Head. Follow that road up to the top of the hill, until it bears left in front of a prominent house.
Fork right here, signposted Llanwnda (no through road). Follow that road, past the cemetery and down the hill towards the village. After the sign for "Ymyl-y-Graig", look for the sign "Garn Gron / Garn Fach" on the left, and turn sharp left up the track.
The nearest railway stations are Fishguard and Goodwick (FGW) and Fishguard Harbour (FGH); there are 4 trains during the day from Cardiff (only 1 on Sundays). From the station to Garn Fach is a 10 minute taxi ride, 40 minute (uphill) walk, or if you're lucky, a bus.
There's a more frequent train service to Haverfordwest (HVF), with an hourly bus (412) from there to Fishguard.
If buying tickets in advance, it can be cheaper to buy a ticket to Cardiff, then a separate one from there to Fishguard or Haverfordwest.
Taxis: Tony's Taxis (01348 873075 or 07989 953792), Zug's Taxi (07531 170807), Carrots Cabs (01348 872088)
The best bus is the Strumble Shuttle, which runs along the coast between St David's and Newport, 3 times daily in the summer, less often in the winter. Alight at Henner Cross, between Pontiago and Goodwick (not listed on timetable, but the drivers know it!), then walk down the footpath over Garnwnda - about 10 minutes walk.
The only other bus is the 410 Fishguard Town service, which at least gets you up the hill from Goodwick, but still leaves a 15-minute walk to Llanwnda.
