The western edge of Snowdonia National Park in Meirionnydd, lying between the Mawddach and Dwyryd estuaries, contains some of the most beautiful upland and coastal scenery in Wales. Most falls within the large ancient district of Ardudwy, which formed part of the traditional Welsh Princes' heartland of Gwynedd and became absorbed into the new county of Merionethshire in 1284. The area offers a stunningly diverse landscape of mountains, foothills, woodland, valleys, lakes, estuaries, impressive sand dunes and long sandy beaches. Its upland landscape is crossed by important ancient trackways and is renowned for its extensive archaeological remains. These include ancient hut settlements and field systems, Neolithic chambered tombs, Iron Age hillforts, Bronze Age stone circles and standing stones. It extended north from the northern side of the Mawddach estuary past Harlech to beyond the Afon Dwyryd and Vale of Ffestiniog. The Rhinog mountains and Trawsfynydd formed its main border in the east and the coast its boundary in the west. This new 94 mile trail explores this wonderful area, and can be easily enjoyed as great day walks.
