Walk to Llyn y Cwn and Devil’s Kitchen Details
A short route this may be, but the terrain you cross is not to be taken lightly. The route around the lake is easy enough, but the steep pull up the Devil’s Kitchen is a full blown mountain path and needs care. You can rest awhile at Llyn y Cwn, before tackling the steep descent. Beware that finding the path back in mist can be tricky.
