Many parts of the walk visit wild, remote but tranquil areas. Without any additions the length is only 41¾ miles. However, variations are included for a total of 45½ miles and if the additional walk to Borth from Aberystwyth is undertaken then the total is 51½ miles. Originally the first part of this walk only went from Borth to Devil’s Bridge. This was known as the Mal Evans Way, named after the man who was once the chairman of the Aberystwyth Group of the Ramblers Association before the signed walk was extended to Pontrhydfendigaid. The walk to Strata Florida is well signed.

Borth is conveniently situated on the Cambrian Coast Railway, close to Aberystwyth. Pontrhydfendigaid is linked by a bus service to Aberystwyth to return to after the walk. From here it is then possible to walk the 6 miles long coastal path to return to Borth. The scenery is very varied from coastal, river, woodland, upland moors to farmland. There is also much mining history attached to the area. The alternative walk described in the guide through the Hafod Estate is a must and is much more interesting than the normal way.
