Stunning walk showcasing the beauty of Welsh mountains and coast
Oct 2021 • Friends
We walked the ardudwy way in three sections from south to north staying for 2 nights in a b and b in Talybont using public transport to get us from start/finish of sections. This is a stunning walk with such a wide variety of landscapes and scenery..really beautiful views of coast and mountains. We rerouted the walk from harlech to the start of the 2nd section to avoid a really long steep climb on roads to a zig zag path through the woods. Still an arduous climb but not as relentless as by the road. The signage is good but there is a couple of sections which leave you guessing. We weren't blessed with fantastic weather but none the less it was a really enjoyable way to de-stress

KEEP CLEAR !!!

Walked the way from Llandecwyn to Llanbedr. The sinage is dreadful in places. One minute you are walking serenly along a footpath, the next you inexplicably find yourself in a field. The latter part of the trail between Harlech and a campsite 2 and a half miles east of Llanbedr is so.badly over grown, the path is no longer visible. As such it is incredibly dangerous as you can't see where you're putting your feet. I slipped and fell, having stood on a slippery stone.

Good stretch of the legs

Beautiful walk from Barmouth to Talybont (one third of the Ardudwy Way). Tough at first, but worth it for the fabulous views of the Estuary one side and the North Sea on the other.

ESCAPE THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE TOWNS.
Sep 2016 • Friends
Get your boots on and enjoy the fresh Welsh mountain air, the smell of nature and the myriad hues of green that adorn the hillsides above the coastal towns. The trails are well-marked, it's difficult to get lost. Over the years, I've done them all without a map from Barmouth northwards for over 20 miles. Even during an exceptionally sunny and practically rainless summer week there are areas that remain quite soggy, especially between Barmouth and Dyffryn so opt for suitable footwear. Whenever you feel you've had enough you can easily get off the trail and head downwards towards the sea and put your feet up in a friendly pub. Ask for real (Welsh) ale and leave that horrible lager for the louts.

Great path between mountains and sea
Jun 2016 • Solo
The path offers excellent views of the coast and of the mountain ranges. The signposting is in parts a bit weak, therefore, a good map is inevitable.It can be subdived in several legs as public transport running parallel to the path is quiet good.
All in all, one of the most spectacular walks I have ever done - I therefore highly recommend it!

Away in the hills
Apr 2016 • Family
The hills above Talybont provide peace and quiet, well away from the hussle and bustle of the city. The Ardudwy Way is well signposted, and simple to follow. Be aware that some of the path is boggy, so make sure you have waterproof footware. The bird life is typical of the Welsh uplands with Wheatear, Meadow Pipit, Skylark and Buzzards a plenty. The Woodlands along the lower stretches are packed with woodland birds including Pied Flycatcher, warblers,Dippers, Yellow Wagtail etc.We have done this walk as a family for a number of years and never tire of its stunning scenery and fascinating wildlife.Just remember to take clothes for all weathers.

Epic walk, sore feet
Aug 2015 • Family
Started the southern section from Barmouth to tal y bout, steep climb for the first two miles , but worth it for the amazing views. Well signposted , so you won't get lost. Once the see is out of view , your in snowdonian wilderness. We were carrying 12 kg backpacks as we were going to wild camp, would be easier with just light rucksacks.we reached the turn off for tal y bout after about 4 hours solid walking, no problems at all, totally amazing views and scenery. We decided to push on and start the middle section, this section was more hard going due to a lot of it being very boggy, so you will need good walking boots or your feet are going to get sore. After about 4 miles we found some not boggy ground to camp on. Very cold at night due to being in the high hills, clear skies gave us the most amazing views of the stars, it's not until you go somewhere without any light pollution that you see the stars in such detail, fantastic day and night out, plan to do the last section at another time, if you love wild Wales this is the walk for you, in 24 hours we only met other walkers three times, and this was the second week in August.

Excellent, undemanding waking
Jun 2015 • Solo
I walked the southern section from Tal y bont to Barmouth This is about 8 miles in length with 1800 feet of ascent and descent. It was high-quality walking all the way. The highlight was the arrival at the pass at Bwlch y Rhiwgr, where the breathtaking view of the Mawddach estuary, Cader Idris and the surrounding hills suddenly unfolds in front of you. I would suggest this walk works best done from north to south.

Excellent two day walk.
Apr 2015 • Solo
Left car in Llandecwyn, taking the train to Barmouth. Completed in two days with B & B roughly half-way. Spectacular. Could not believe that I saw no-one in the 2 days who was doing the same as I as the route lends itself to a 2 day excursion. Had the advantage of a spell of fine weather so was mainly dry underfoot, with good weather for the whole of the expedition.

Stunning Little Known Walk
Jul 2014 • Solo
This amazing trail connects Llandecwyn, (across the estuary from Portmeirion), with Barmouth, breaking down into 3 manageable walks, each suitable for a day's hiking. Lying between the Wales Coast Path and the extremes of the Cambrian Way the Taith Ardudwy occupies that middle ground - high enough to provide some fantastic views but never so demanding that it is beyond the reach of 'ordinary' or even casual walkers. It is clearly trail-marked for most of its length with circular yellow and brown buzzard symbols and it traverses an extraordinary variety of landscapes in a relatively short distance. Best of all is that it is scandalously unknown and so you will find, even in the heights of the summer season, that you can walk through sublime scenery with hardly another walker in sight all day. Take that Lake District!

I cannot recommend this trail highly enough.
