Borth to Devil's Bridge to Pontrhydfendigaid Trail (Mal Evans Way)


58 km / 36 miles
The Mal Evans Way has been extended to Pontrhydfendigaid. Mal Evans was once the chairman of the Aberystwyth Group of the Ramblers' Association, who have way marked the route. It offers some fine scenery and passes through some old mining areas to join Ystumtuen, which is on the route of the Cambrian Way, to join the sea at Borth. There are links with the Dyfi Valley Way and the Cardigan Bay Coast Walk.

Part of the route of this LDP is closed in Hafod Estate, Ceredigion, for six weeks from 10th October 2023 for tree felling. Hafod's map at shows a version of the closures.
