When we moved to The Woollen Mill, the footbridge over the river was closed as it had been condemned by the council. This meant that local people who had been enjoying the walk described here for decades were forced to double back on themselves. We couldn’t explore this route either until the new bridge was constructed. It took two years but the bridge was finally built. In the weeks that followed, North Wales was battered by several terrible storms and so we didn’t manage to walk the circular route. But then the country was locked down due to COVID-19. We didn’t have any guests and we couldn’t travel anywhere, so it was the perfect time to explore the local walks.
This route takes you across the river, through fields, along lanes and along the cycle path near Penygroes before returning to the mill via Clynnog Road. There are some fabulous views of Snowdon and much more to see along the way.
