Barmouth to Penmaenpool Walk Details
On the opposite side of the Mawddach, there’s the easy option of following the Mawddach Trail to Penmaenpool. This route however takes in a much more challenging route along the southern flanks of the wild Rhinogydd instead, following old coach and drover’s routes across ancient passes.
On the way, you’ll pass the famous Clogau Gold Mine – and there really is “gold in them thar hills”. You can then return via the Mawddach Trail to the start.
