If you are visiting Machynllth or the Corris Craft Centre and fancy a little time in the great outdoors, the Tan y Coed Trail is a great choice. At just 2.6km, it is very short but certainly sweet. We use this one to give the dogs a run out when we are in the area. The woodland is gorgeous and there’s beautiful waterfall to enjoy with a handy picnic table nearby. The toilets at the entrance to Tan y Coed come in handy and there’s even a poo bin for dog walkers to use.
Tan y Coed is part of the Dyfi Forest and is located just north of Macynllth. It is managed by Natural Resources Wales which means there is excellent signage together with consistent waymarkers.
Duration: 1 hour at a stretch but it is worth lingering at the waterfall
Terrain: Woodland paths and forest roads
