Walks Around Aberystwyth and Cwm Rheidol Guidebook

Walks Around Aberystwyth and Cwm Rheidol Guidebook

by: Des Marshall
To those prepared to venture on foot from Aberystwyth there is a plethora of beautiful walks. Sessile oak trees add a feeling of eccentricity to many of these with their contorted trunks and branches. This area has some of the most beautiful waterfalls, rivers and streams in Wales, all of which have had much written about them. Plynlimon too, is easily reached and makes a fine walk with the remote valleys to the north of it being the scene of many a battle in the days of Owen Glyndwr.

Whatever your level of fitness you will find in this guide walks to suit all abilities and tastes. Distances for the 24 walks are mainly between 3 and 7 miles and each walk is graded as easy, moderate or strenuous. The route directions and accompanying sketch maps are sufficiently detailed to follow the route without further help. A brief outline of each route together with an estimate of the time that should be allowed is given at the beginning of each walk.
