Mawwdach Trail Circular


I recently spent a few days with some friends in a cabin near Lake Bala in Wales.  It is a truly beautiful area.  We are so lucky in the UK to have such a variety of gorgeous country side on such a small island.  We found this lovely walk beside the Mawddach estuary between Barmouth and Dollgelau.  You can do a complete circuit of the estuary from Barmouth or Dollgellau along this trail which is both a cycleway and a walkway.  This is 9.5 miles and I wish now we had done that – but another time.  We opted for a slightly shorter route off piste so to speak!  Unfortunately this meant walking along the road for a mile or so at the end.  We went back the next day and walked from the same car park at Arthog into Barmouth across the estuary bridge.
