Gyfylchi Ridgetop Trail

DIFFICULTY:

Strenuous

DISTANCE:

10.4 km / 6.5 mi

ALLOW:

4 hours and 20 minutes

HABBITAT:

Forest / Stony Track

Follow forest roads, stony tracks and paths to an ancient Baptist Chapel at Gyfylchi, and the ruins of Nant y Bar, whose cows once provided the whole valley with milk. The walk is quite steep in places so walking boots and waterproofs are recommended. Most of the walk is through conifer forests so be alert and look out for birds that specialise in feeding on conifers, such as Crossbills, and Siskins. In open glades and along rides you may see butterflies such as Peacock.
