This walk was the highlight of our 2-week tour of the UK. Parking is fairly close to the top of the walk, so there isn't a lot of climbing required, but you are still rewarded with unbelievable views, and a wonderful adventure. The trail is...More

Takes about a couple of hours to walk, best to walk counterclockwise (head to right when you get to the field where you need to ascent, end up at the lake at the end of the walk) - that way you see views of the...More

The walk is easily accessible and can be short around the lake or the full walk offers amazing views of the Barmouth Estuary and the rail bridge.

We completed this walk when staying in the local area. A relatively easy walk with free parking near the start. it takes about 1.5 hrs of steady walking. Best way is to go "anti-clockwise" around as per the sign posts. Stunning views in all directions....More
