Walking

Snowdonia national park is a spectacular area of Beaches, Lakes, Countryside and Mountains all on our doorstep. The closest being the amazing Mawddach Estuary.

The scenic Mawddach trail runs between Barmouth and Dolgellau below the foothill of Cadair Idris. The trail follows the course of the old railway line from Barmouth to Ruabon which was open between 1869 and 1965 and was popular with Victorian holiday makers visiting the fashionable resort of Barmouth. Once a shipbuilding centre, the estuary is now rich in bird life and you’ll pass two RSPB reserves- Mawddach Valley and Arthog Bog. At the mouth of the estuary you cross a wooden bridge which carries the railway line, pedestrian and cyclists into the seaside resort of Barmouth.

Running alongside the Mawddach trail on top of the mountains is the famous Panorama walk, click on the link below for more information and a free guide/GPS route
