Walks In North Wales

5-10 Miles

Coed Y Brenin

Coed Y Brenin forest North Wales, a nice walk at just under 7 miles on decent forest tracks. There are a lot of mountain bikes on half this route (we did not realise it was a mountain bike center!), bikes aside a really nice walk. Starting at the visitor center car park the fist of half of the walk is along Llyn Eden (River Eden) and it is beautiful, after the river a steep ascent though woods then back on forest tracks for the return leg. There are great views and a lot of bird life, we saw two jays!

Llyn Brenig Reversed

Llyn Brenig Reservoir walked in the opposite direction to normal, we finished at the dam wall instead of starting that way. A great walk at just under 10 miles, very easy going on good tracks and paths. Stunning countryside views and views across the reservoir. We do this often but posting it again as previous posts were recorded on MyTracks with KML file, this time done with a Garmin so GPX file available.
