Step into September
There’s nothing better than a good walk to blow the cobwebs away and work up a good appetite for dinner.
There are walks for everyone in and around the Trefeddian. From flat pushchair/wheelchair friendly to mountainous ranges for the more energetic.
Pushchair and wheelchair friendly walks
Two miles of promenade stretch across the sea front in Tywyn. With views up to the Llyn Peninsula on a clear day, this is a lovely flat stroll easily accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs, with plenty of benches along the way.
Look out for… seals and dolphins
Morfa Mawddach Trail
This nine mile trail along disused railway track is perfect for those with wheels. One of the most scenic stretches in from Penmaenpool, with beautiful views down the estuary.
Visit…the old signal box RSPB Information centre and observatory
A meander along the Broad Water just outside Tywyn is a delight for all the senses. Beautiful views and an abundance of bird life make for a wonderful walk leading you to Ynysmaengwyn.
Discover…a fairy glen, bug hotel and unique dovecote
For stunning panoramic views over Aberdyfi and out to sea this lovely circular walk will take you high above the village and along the beach.
Eye Spy…St David’s in Pembrokeshire on a clear day
Take a picnic
High above Dolgellau, with striking views of some of Snowdonia’s magnificent mountain ranges, this walk will take you though part of an ancient estate steeped in Welsh history. Meander through woodlands and meadows to the shores of Llyn Cynwch.
Look out for…four bridges in the distance
Another walk steeped in history takes you along the beautiful Dysynni Valley in the shadow of the dominating Bird Rock. The rock is so called as it is one of the only inland nesting sites for cormorants in Europe.
Discover...the story of Mary Jones and a 12th century castle
Standing at an impressive 1590 ft this is not a summit for the faint hearted. The mountain can be climbed from either Pennal or Abergynolwyn, the latter being the most popular route.
Discover…the remains of a Bronze-Age round barrow
This is a tough walk and one which requires lots of yummy snacks, water and good navigation skills! For grandeur and rugged beauty, few locations equal Cader Idris which stands at 2930 ft.
Look out for…jets flying below you
