A walk to Llyn Gwernan lying on the north side of the foothills of Cader Idris, it is a magnificent location with the summits of Tyrrau Mawr to the west and the Cyfrwy to the south a striking backdrop. Over the ridge to the north is one of the area’s ancient paths above the Mawddach Valley. A large variety of fish live in the lake as well as toads and frogs, it is also a great habitat for birds of many varieties and small mammals. The lake is an important Geological Site and has been designated a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’, the peat holds a complete record of pollen from plants that have grown here since the last Ice Age about 10,000 years ago.
