There some great walks and beautiful cycle trails around Dolgellau. Here are a couple of the best; the Dolgellau tourist office has details of many more.

Precipice Walk

Easy-going loop with great views to the 1000ft ramparts of Cadair Idris and along the Mawddach Estuary – best in late afternoon or early morning sun.

Cadair Idris: Pony Path

If the weather is fine, don’t miss this classic and enjoyable ascent of Cadair Idris. Early views to the craggy flanks of the massif are tremendous, but they disappear as you climb steeply to the col, where you turn left on a rocky path to the summit shelter on Penygadair (2930ft).
