Overview

'The Mawddach Trail footpath walk and cycle route winds for 9.5 miles (15km) along the disused railway track on the southern edge of the spectacular Mawddach estuary. Whilst the trail can be joined at several points it starts at the picturesque market town of Dolgellau and finishes by crossing the iconic railway bridge over the mouth of the estuary into Barmouth.'

Overview

'The Mawddach Estuary is a beautiful and largely unspoilt gem hidden away at the southern end of the Snowdonia National Park. The Mawddach Way is a 50km walk which uses existing footpaths and permissive paths to make a circuit of the hills either side of the estuary, passing through woodland, pasture and open country. The ideal location for a walking holiday in Wales!'

Overview

'For experienced walkers only ... The walk goes up the Clywedog Valley and onto the heather moorland above. There is then a choice of three routes, each with good viewpoints. There is no need to decide which route to take until you reach the moor. There is a wealth of natural and historical interest on the walk.'

Overview

'From the end of the 18th Century until the beginning of the 20th Century the slate valley communities of Gwynedd - Ogwen, Peris, Nantlle, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Corris - were dynamic, thriving industrial areas. Between them these areas consisted of over 60 quarries and mines employing over 18,000 people. The quarrymen and their families created distinctive communities, overwhelmingly Welsh speaking and Non-conformist. The slate industry itself dramatically changed the landscape - slate tips, quarry buildings and railways can still be seen today ...'

Overview

'In April 2002, the Snowdonia National Park established two Local Access Forums – one for the North, and one (jointly with Gwynedd Council) for the South of the National Park. The Forums were established in accordance with Regulations issued by Welsh Assembly Government and guidance from the Countryside Council for Wales. Membership is equally balanced between land management and recreation interests. Meetings are open to the public. The Membership must be reappointed every three years, in accordance with the Regulations. This was done in April 2014, and the process will be repeated early in 2017.'

Whether you're looking for a long walk such as the Mawddach Trail or a short stroll along the Traeth Benar boardwalk, what these walks have in common is that they have been designed with accessibility in mind ...'
