Stroll - Alongside the Mawddach Estuary


View from Fegla Fawr
Route: Following the lower Mawddach Estuary upstream towards Dolgellau as far as the Abergwynant Woods. The outward route goes via the coastal footpath between Fegla Fach and Fegla Fawr, and returns along the old railway track.

This route is just the seaward end of a longer hike, the Mawddach Trail, which goes the full 9 miles to Dolegellau, along the bed of the old railway.
