A good choice for a wet day. Pleasant walk through forest although sign posts would be helpful, make sure you have OS mapping on your phone.

Wonderful place for exploring on bike or foot. Loits of tracks to follow. Beautiful isolated lakes with stunning views hidden amongst the trees

Walk here often and a place I will always take people to from out of the area. The walks are all so well marked and so much to see on them and just so quiet and peaceful. Has to be one of my favourite places.

Walked one of the strenuous dedicated hiking trails and was not disappointed. A beautiful scenic walk that takes you up hill, through forests, through fields and passed waterfalls. Took 3 hours but worth it.

We started and finished our walk at Betws-y-Coed, and had a lovely day long walk through the Gwydir Forest. You certainly need an ordnance survey map to do this walk, and it is better if you have a walks leader. There are quite a few...More
