Walk - Slopes & forestry of Moelwyn Bach to Llyn-y-Garnedd

Moderate 3.5 mile dog walk skirting across the slopes and forestry of Moelwyn Bach, using some good stone-surfaced forestry roadways.
Llyn-y-Garnedd Uchaf


Llyn-y-Garnedd Isaf
Llyn-y-Garnedd Isaf is a good halfway point for a break.

A bit of shelter at lunchtime!
Parking is free at Tan-y-Bwlch Station (Ffestiniog Railway) Car Park.

There are no stiles, three pedestrian gates, and a couple of pole barriers to duck under. The ascent is a long steady easy gradient, and the going is fairly even.

There are usually no sheep grazing this section of forestry, so plenty opportunity to be off lead.

The Cafe and Toilets at Tan-y-Bwlch Station are only open in season, when the trains are running.  The Oakley Arms is at the bottom of the hill, by the A487, and there are Public Toilets opposite, by the bus shelter.

Directions: From A487 at Maentwrog, take the B4410 uphill from the Oakley Arms to Tan-y-Bwlch Station. Tan-y-Bwlch Station is well signposted from the A487.
