59 miles (95 km)

A super circular walk through the Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire countryside visting the River Cleddau estuary, the Ogham stones, the Norman castles at Llawhaden and Carew Castle as well as the prehistoric remains at Llawhaden.
Part of the trail is used on the Lawrenny Quay and the Daugleddau River Walk. It explores a picturesque peninsula of the Cleddau estuary. You'll also pass close to Carew Castle where there's a splendid circular walk around the delightful mill pond.

Stepping stones over the Cresswell - geograph.org.uk - 758910

Stepping stones over the Cresswell. This location is definitely not crossable 24 hours a day as the river is tidal here and the stepping stones are only accessible during low tide. Based on what I could see, they're uncrossable for about 3 hours each high tide making them unusable for about 6 hours in each day. They do form part of the trail.
