Llyn Brenig – Up to the Lake Details

Another long, but less technical route around Llyn Brenig. This has more trail than road and doesn’t hit an A road once. You can start off from Cyffylliog as suggested on the Ride Hiraethog website, or at any other point on the route that takes your fancy.

One look at the map will show that there are plenty of variations you could do on the day if you fancied taking a shorter route or a different route down. What’s certain is that this is a long route with plenty of ascent, so you’ll probably feel this in the morning!
