Aberglaslyn Pass Beddgelert
This walk takes you through a stunning narrow gorge in the Snowdonia National Park. The path runs along the running waters of the River Glaslyn with waterfalls, interesting vegetation and wonderful views of the surrounding mountainous scenery. The Welsh Highland Railway runs through the pass so look out for their splendid steam trains as you go.
The walk starts from the National Trust car park in Nantmor village south of Beddgelert. From here it is a short stroll to the the fisherman's path which will take you along the side of the Aberglaslyn gorge and the River Glaslyn. The path runs for just over a mile to Beddgelert with mature oak woodland and old bridges over the river to observe. The village of Beddgelert is very picturesque with a fine bridge crossing the River Colwyn and a number of good pubs for refreshment. You can of course start the walk from here if you wish.
If you would like to continue your walking in the area then you could climb the imposing Moel Hebog for wonderful views over the area. You could also visit the nearby Beddgelert Forest where you'll find miles of walking paths and mountain bike trails.
There's also two lovely reservoirs with trails along the water and through surrounding woodland. Llyn Gwynant and Llyn Dinas are just a short distance from Beddgelert.
