This is so accessible from the village of Betws-y-Coed. We did one of the walks which started from the Church in the centre. The initial climb out of the village was very steep and a little challenging on the legs however it was well worth it for the lake and the view at the end. The maps that you can buy of the waymarked forest routes give an indication of time and difficulty. We found the difficulty rating fair however if you are quick walker then the times are a little out. Lovely forest and great place to enjoy the welsh fresh air.
