We have either cycled or walked this trail many times, but this was the first time with our daughter. It was fantastic to be able to share it with her.

Wear good comfortable shoes and take refreshments with you as the is only the George Inn from Dolgellau to Barmouth approx 10 miles. But well worth it

Had a lovely walk along the river with the dog, who hopped in and out at several points! First part from Dolgellau is on a proper path, but a bit muddy after that, but still a nice walk which seemed popular with locals and tourists.

Staying just north of Dolgellau, we detoured along the Mawddach Trail, as i wanted to visit the nearby wooden toll bridge. Stunning area of natural beauty in southern Snowdonia. Very very wet in April - just bring waterproofs!!!
