Black Mixen is a hill in Radnorshire which may be accounted a subsidiary summit of Great Rhos, in the Radnor Forest, though it is certainly a distinctive hill of itself. Black Mixen lies to the east-north-east of Great Rhos, across the head of Harley Dingle, the steep, forbidden valley used as a shooting range and testing ground for ammunition.

The summit of Black Mixen is marked with a cairn, and is next to a radio transmitter and its building.[1]

To the east of Black Mixen is Bache Hill. To the south lie the Black Mountains. Great Rhos raises its great head in a broad, flat plateau to the west.
