This figure of eight walk climbs into the hills above Llyn Cwellyn before descending to the woodland on the southern side of the water. From the high points there's great views over the lake to Snowdon on the other side. You'll also enjoy views of the nearby Llyn y Dywarchen and a walk along the Afon Drws-y-Coed.
The walk can be started from the southern end of the lake. From here you can pick up trails heading up towards Drws-y-Coed.
You can extend the walk by continuing west and climbing Mynydd Mawr. On the other side of the lake you can pick up the Snowdon Ranger Path.
