7 miles/11km, with 365m of ascent along forest tracks/paths and lanes.

This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023

This walk will take us from the campsite up into the Gwydir Forest in a circular route over about 7 miles, taking in waterfalls, forest tracks, disused mines, lakes and country lanes.  

We’ll make a hangover friendly late start, walking from the campsite up a forest track and along a lane to reach the Grey Mare’s Tail waterfall, where we’ll stop briefly.  From here we’ll take a forest track, contouring the hill as we walk south towards the dam at Llyn y Parc.  More forest tracks take us past a small disused reservoir and on to Llyn y Sarnau, where we’ll stop for some lunch.  From here we’ll walk north along the lane, past the disused Hafna mine before peeling off on to another forest track before then cutting east downhill through the forest to re-join the the path back to the campsite.
