WALK 20 – CIRCULAR WALK OF LLANELLTYD & GANLLWYD VIA THE OLD PRECIPICE WALK
LIMITED SPACES REMAINING
LEADER – GWYNETH GRIFFITH
leave Llanelltyd and head towards Ganllwyd via Bryniau Glo & Hafod Fedw, crossing the Afon Mawddach and heading back towards Llanelltyd via Mynydd Penrhos, the copper mines, Old Precipice Walk & Llyn Cynwch. The walk passes through an interesting variety of habitats which include deciduous woodland, a confider plantation, meadows, lakeside and sheep-walk. The main attraction of the walk is the incomparable views down the Moelwynion, to the west are the Rhinogydd, immediately south it the long scarp of Cader Idris, while to the east lies the Aran and Arenig.
The old precipice walk is a contour walk, in that the path roughly follows the level of the 800ft contour line, so there is not much climbing or descending involved, making it an ideal walk for the whole family. The precipice, along part of the western side, is by no means as terrifying as it sounds but walkers who suffer from vertigo may need some assistance along this section.
