The Mawddach-Ardudwy Trail

A variable long distance walk of up to 94 miles exploring the landscape and history of the western edge of Snowdonia National Park in Meirionnydd, containing some of the most beautiful upland and coastal scenery in Wales, with breathtaking views.


The Trail passes through a stunning diverse landscape of mountains, foothills, woodland, valleys, lakes, estuaries, impressive sand dunes and long sandy beaches. It features classic viewpoints, historic towns and villages, ancient highways, prehistoric monuments and other sites of historical interest.


From Barmouth the Trail explores both sides of the Mawddach estuary, before following the waymarked Ardudwy Way north through the foothills of the Rhinogs. It then follows the new Wales Coast Path around the lower Dwyryd valley to Porthmadog, then returns via Harlech, with its famous castle, now a World Heritage Site, and Shell Island to Barmouth.


A key feature of the Trail is that it is supported by easily accessible public transport throughout its length, allowing each section to be undertaken as linear day walks.
