Park at the car park in the village of Llwyngwril,Gwynedd. Walk out of
the car park and turn right up the road. After a few hundred yards you
will see a bridleway signed up a track on the right (by a house called
Tawelfan). Go up the bridleway passing the old Quaker house on the right
and over a stile at the end by the last house. Continue up the path that
first goes through some woodland and then between some stone walls.
Keep walking up between some walls as you come out of the trees and keep ascending up the path with the sea on your left hand side. Eventually the path becomes grassy and levels out and you make your way towards a tarmac road that goes to a farm. At this point join the tarmac road a continue along it with wonderful views of Barmouth, the Mawddac estuary and the mountains in the distance
Keep walking along this tarmac surfaced road until you come to an area where the road turns down hill and the forestry has been cleared. A triple finger post indicates a path up hill to the right through the cleared plantation follow this track. After a while you cross a stile into more open land. Keep following the fairly obvious path up. Eventually the path will come to stone wall on your left keep following with the wall on your left. Look out for the memorial on the wall for the crew of the aircraft that crashed here in the second world war. At this point you will meet the mountain road or more correctly Ffordd Ddu and you turn sharp right, uphill
in a south west direction.
Follow the stone road for about 2 miles until you see another stone track going downhill on the right; take this track again in a south westerly direction after about another two and a quarter miles you will come to a ladder stile into a grass field on the right. Go over the ladder stile and head directly across to the stile into the next field and then cross that one to a further stile that brings you onto a country road. Take the road directly ahead then swing right and walk down to the main road. Turn right and this will bring you back to the centre of your village and your starting point.
