Llynnau Cregennen Waymarked Trail Details

There are a few locations in Snowdonia that are as photogenic and immediately recognisable as Llynnau Cregennen. With the towering knoll of Bryn Brith dominating the skyline, surely as intimidating a location for a hill fort as any! There’s an excellent viewpoint down to Barmouth above the car park (just near the picnic benches!)

The route around the lake is waymarked clearly with National Trust markers and while there’s no information on their website, the notice board at the lakes provide enough information to those wishing to complete this easy walk. You can also return between the two lakes for a shorter walk, or complete a figure of eight and walk an extended route.

Note that the road to this location from Arthog is pretty steep in places!
