Hike - Cwm Teigl circular, near Llan Ffestiniog

Cwm Teigl, in the shadow of Manod Mawr

Short 3.5 mile hike along the route of the ancient roadway that once ran from Llan Ffestiniog through Cwm Teigl to Betws-y-Coed, in the shadow of Manod Mawr. Return by the path alongside Afon Gamallt, passing Hafod Ysbyty, which was once a 16th Century travellers' hospice.

Limited roadside parking near the Horeb Chapel, or at various points further along Cwm Teigl.

The first stretch along the lane from Horeb Chapel will need to be on lead, as it runs through some sheep pastures.No significant obstacles, mostly shallow gradients, though there is one short steep gradient linking the outbound route to the return route.
