There’s plenty to see on this circular walk through ancient woodland near Beddgelert. Mountain streams run alongside the path as you wander through the trees and you eventually arrive at Llyn Llywelyn, a stunning lake with a mountain backdrop. There are amazing views of Snowdon from the far side of the lake which shouldn’t be missed.
This is a 4.4km walk on woodland paths and unmade roads. It is an undemanding hike with no steep ascents or hazardous areas. Much of the route is also used by cyclists, so care should be taken if you are walking with dogs. The Welsh Highland Railway traverses the forest and you have to cross the track at two points along the way. There are no gates at the second crossing, making it advisable to put dogs on leads before approaching the track.
