Panorama Walk Barmouth

6 miles (9.5 km)

A classic circular walk around Barmouth climbing above the town for magnificent views over the Mawddach estuary and the Snowdonia National Park.
Start your walk from the car park on Panorama Road, just to the north east of the town. From here you can pick up footpaths to take you up to the Panorama gardens, where there is a great viewpoint. The route then heads north to Cutiau where you turn west towards Llwynon. There follows a challenging climb up to Bwlch Llan which reaches a height of around 1100ft. Your efforts are rewarded with wide ranging views over the Cader Idris range and Cardigan Bay from the high points.
The walk then heads to Ffridd Y Graig and Craig Y Gigfran before descending to the sea front in Barmouth. The final section then passes along the pretty Barmouth Beach before climbing back to the finish point at the car park.
To extend your walking in the area try the Barmouth to Fairbourne Walk which takes you across Barmouth Bridge to the village of Fairbourne. This uses part of the Mawddach Trail which takes you along the old Ruabon to Barmouth railway line on a brilliant cycling and walking trail. It will take you to Dolgellau where you can try the excellent Precipice Walk.
You could also try the long distance Taith Ardudwy Way which starts in the town and takes you through the Snowdonia National Park.
