Cwm Gwernol Quarryman’s Trail Details

This moderate walk in South Snowdonia starts from the Nant Gwernol station on the Tal y Llyn Railway  or from the village of Abergynolwyn. The trail can be followed by following the Blue boot waymarked posts. It sets off initially along the banks of the Afon Gwernol, before climbing up to the old quarries at Bryn yr Eglwys. There’s also an old packhorse bridge a couple more kilometres up – Pont Llaeron, but the track is non existent and wet and advised only in dry conditions!

More information, and a printable map (though you can barely make out details on the map, it is useful used in conjunction with a proper OS Map) can be downloaded from the Natural Resource Wales site – Quarrymans Trail Information Sheet.
