Ideal for a lunch break, early morning (or to work up an appetite for a slice of cake in the Lakeside Cafe!) the Lakes Link Walking Route is one not to be missed- it takes just half an hour to complete.
A scenic route through the trees and then on to open panoramic views to link the two lakes and their trails.
Ordinance Survey Map Reference SH 96118 57146.
Through the trees towards the main road (B4501). Once at the main road you will see that the trail continues directly across from you. Take great care when crossing.
Through the trees once again, crossing straight over when you reach the forest road and immediately picking up the path again.
You will see (weather dependant!) the gates leading through to Hafod Elwy Nature Reserve at the end of the tree line.
The views open out here in spectacular fashion to the left and the right. Follow the trail markers until you are heading down towards the Alwen.
Carry on down the path, following the trail markers, and you will find yourself either at the wonderful wooden bridge that will take you across, or equally picking up the trail markers for your chosen walk.
9.5m / 14.5km. The best of both worlds! This moderate walking trail combines both the Brenig Walking Trail and Alwen Walking Trails, with some spectacular views to be found.• GO TO ROUTE •
