A good curcular walk with plenty of options to make it shorter and longer. No noticeable toilets when parking at the reservoir. Paid for parking - card accepted. If you do the two lakes walk I'm sure there are toilets at Llyn Brenig. Good for most abilities and children. Bike trails too

We walked the whole circular trail (11km) and it’s a quiet, varied route with some spectacular views. Saw an Osprey hovering above us which the kids loved. Parking was £2.50 and only by cash as the card reader was broken. We drove past Brenig and that seemed much busier in comparison - probably due to it having facilities etc. (Alwen doesn’t have anything).

Walked the full trail today. Approx 7 miles. Beautiful scenery - some through woodland and some in open sunshine. You need to take drinks and a picnic if you want to. I recommend going anti clockwise, finishing by coming over the dam as it is slightly easier and less severe uphill climbs that way. Very enjoyable.

It’s a very nice walk around the alwen. Roughly 7 miles. Fantastic scenery and plenty of places to stop if you wish.

Visited Brenig first and then stopped at Alwen reservoir which was in my opinion prettier. Didn’t do the whole walk round but will definitely be back to do it at some point. There are no facilities here, unlike Brenig, but saw a picnic table part way round with a great view of the water. Quite a few dog walkers and runners en route. Very beautiful spot.
