This walk will take your breath away in more ways than you can imagine.
Circular path around Beddgelert: Approx 9 km - 3 leisurely hours
This is a relatively easy route provided you have good walking shoes or boots. It is a varied path with ever changing stunning scenery. Outside the peak tourist season this path is usually quiet. You will not be following a queue of people. Wonderful.
The climb gradually gets more strenuous and energy sapping but before too long you are high on the hills and at the highest point of this path and it feels like wilderness in every direction. What amazing views.
Ahead of you is Llyn Dinas and the steep descending path that takes you right down to it's shore. With views like these it is not easy keeping your eyes on the path, but it is steep and you do need to watch your steps. Once you reach the shore of Llyn Dinas you turn left (west) and walk along the river back to Beddgelert.
Looks lovely but how do you know the path to follow? Is it clear?
This path is fairly well defined. Well most of the way anyway. There are some sections high up on the hills which are not so well defined and you just kind-of guess. It is harder when it is quiet and you are alone up there with no other walkers to follow. But overall there is nothing to worry about. You won't get lost .
Welsh Leprechaun! How did they get there?
Thought Leprechauns were Irish.... Got to be a dragon!
