A lovely mornings walk from Dolgellau to Barmouth on a beautiful sunny day.woods on one side and beach views on the other side. Easy walking on flat terrain. Lots of bikes also on the trail which meant keeping our dog on a lead.

A wonderful place to walk or for a leisurely bike ride. Have done both over the years and enjoyed leisurely bike rides when our children were younger. Stop off at the George for a drink and enjoy the views. Visit the nereby RSPB.

Lovely day cycling along the trail. Easy going and off road so great for us with a 1 yo and dog. Good starting point for young children learning to ride as relatively flat and easy surfaces. Beautiful views too.
