Precipice Walk Dolgellau

3 miles (5 km)

A lovely circular walk through the hills surrounding Llyn Cynwch in the Snowdonia National Park. From the elevated position of the trail there are fabulous views over the Mawddach River and the surrounding mountains. The walk takes place on good, signed paths with an easier path along the reservoir for those looking for a more sedate stroll.
You can start your walk from the car park a few miles north of Dolgellau, near to Nannau Farm and the Foel Offrwm Hill Fort. From here you can pick up the trails heading west towards the lake. Follow the paths above the water, taking you round to Foel Cynwch and the Foel Faner Iron Age Hillfort. The route then descends to the lake where you enjoy an easy waterside stretch before returning to the car park.
In Dolgellau you can pick up the Mawddach Trail to take you along the river to Barmouth. Here you can try the Panorama Walk for more great views over the river estuary.
