This is a fantastic walk if you want both variety and amazing mountain views without having to take on an arduous hike. At 4.1km, the circular route can be completed in a couple of hours but you will discover plenty of spots where you might want to linger. The walk takes you through woodland, across hillsides and past waterfalls. There are striking views across the valley from the higher points and the cascades towards the end are beautiful. This route is well-marked and so it is impossible to get lost and the terrain is ideal for dogs. You may find livestock grazing and so dogs are best kept on leads if they are likely to chase after the sheep.
Beginning from the National Trust’s Craflwyn Centre car park, the walk is one of several you can tackle from the same start point including the Legendary Trail of Dinas Emrys. Parking is free but the National Trust ask that you make a donation to help with the cost of maintaining the trail.
Duration: 2 hours if you don’t rush. Relatively steep ascent and a change in elevation of 212 metres.
Terrain: Woodland paths, rocky paths and grassland.
