This is an easy, largely waymarked trail in the Woodland Trust Coed Nant Gwernol property. You can also join this route from the Nant Gwernol station on the Tal-Llyn Railway.

1 Start off from the centre of the village car park along the country lane that, if you’re facing the road towards Tal-y-Llyn, is to your right (as seen below) with the Railway pub behind you. You’ll pass a terrace of houses to the left and a cafe to the right. You can take the footpath you pass to the right and walk this route as an out and back, or follow this lane for 1.5km until you see a Woodland Trust signpost for “The Station”

2 Follow this track, downhill and steady, keeping left when the paths split (or you’ll end up back on the minor road). It’s an easy path, but well worth taking your time over as you follow the tumbling Afon Gwernol back to the village.

You can also walk on the far side of the stream, with another fully waymarked trail if you wish.
