A circular walk through beautiful countryside near Bala. Starting at the Gorwelion café and walking to the village of Llanfor, then going through farmland and hills slowly ascending steadily upwards. You can see we made a couple of mistakes by the map and had to back track, some of the first half of the walk requires eagle eyes to spot the track and styles etc. Great views of Bala and the surrounding hills on the return leg, that was on better defined paths and lanes, finishing with a lovely walk though parkland before heading back to the café car park.
