Waterfalls and Goldmines Trail Details
A steady walk towards Pistyll Cain and Rhaeadr Mawddach.
Can be completed on mountain bikes as well.
From the FC Website:
“A riverside walk on forest tracks, suitable for pushchairs, to the beautiful waterfalls of Rhaeadr Mawddach and Pistyll Cain, the route passes old gold mine workings along the way. A shorter blue waymarked route returns across the wooden aerial bridge while a longer yellow route continues down stream to the Bailey bridge before crossing the river and returning to the car park along the road. This is also a family cycle route so please be aware of other users..”
There’s a Free MP3 audio walk available via the link as well.
