Walk here often and a place I will always take people to from out of the area. The walks are all so well marked and so much to see on them and just so quiet and peaceful. Has to be one of my favourite places.

Brilliant area for walking and many mountain bike tracks of varying difficulty. Walking tracks have waymarkers so are easy to follow

Great ride on the Marin MTB trail (start near LLanwrst). Stunning views and well built/maintained trail. Quite a bit of gravel road linking up the single track but that does give you time to chat with your ride buddies and enjoy the views. The new...More
