Complete the activities using the instructions and send them and your photos to our Project Officer Richard Richard.email@example.com
Dolau Dyfi Walking Guide 4: Talybont Woods
This walk starts from Talybont on the ‘Borth to Devil’s Bridge’ trail, joins the ‘Wales Coast Path’ and then loops back to Talybont through the woods. If using the bus, the walk is a bit more straightforward and less strenuous if you start at Talybont and finish in Taliesin (there are regular buses between the villages).
Dolau Dyfi Walking Guide 3: Cefn Erglodd Loop
An interesting walk up and along the hill South of the A487. There is a steep climb through oak woodland at the beginning and a steep descent back down. Once up on the edge of ridge the route is more level and open with expansive views over Talybont, Taliesin and the Dyfi estuary.
