Wow! Absolutely stunning!
I was carrying a young baby and I won't lie I thought I was going to die doing the climb up! Steps start on the walk up to the bridge. It's definitely the hardest part of the trail- the initial climb. A lady was sat at the bottom saying she'd given up. Push through the 1000 steps (if you start this end) it's worth it! Took 3 other kids up 6/7&12 (used to trail runs over Cannock chase) they all enjoyed it immensely and wowed at the views.

We were on a coach day trip when i decided to have a browse on TripAdvisor and found this trail !
When we arrived in Barmouth we had a spot of lunch and picked up a map from the information desk inside the train station, this cost £1.
To be honest, its a terrible terrible map, we wanted to find Dinas Oleu and the frenchmans grave yet from the map had no idea HOW to get up there. We popped in many local shops to ask for help all who couldn't decode it. Thankfully a customer shopping there told us to just cut up the side of the building, which felt like walking into someones back garden but this was No4 on the map "Old town"
We were also told the town has a local map which is free, typically being a tourist you'd be given the paid option first right...

Many cobbled steps later we realised we were on the right path. It has a "Mary Poppins" feel to it as you are literally on the roof tops.

As you can see from our photos the views are spectacular, really worth the climb and it isn't that difficult. I'm still recovering from a bad car accident and my ankle, knee and hip aren't what they should, but i managed this with no pain or aching. That may have something to do with all the photo stops on the way haha!i

I wish there was more time to cover all the stops on the map, we spent around 2/3 hours climbing and ended up missing out the stops near the beach front and the "island of brothers'

Wonderful views, would highly recommend !

There is nothing to dislike. The walks along the trails upon the back hills and mountains in and around Barmouth and beyond are amazing. The beauty of everything created in nature, from wildlife to the views all around, from the over-look of the Barmouth Bay to the splendour of the mountains themselves.
On a clear sunny day and if you enjoy and love nature and its delights, the Heritage Trails are second to none.

This is one of my favorite walks in Barmouth. You can pick and choose which parts you want to walk. From the more strenuous walks up into the hills behind Barmouth town, to the easier walks along the sea front to the harbour.
I would highly recommend downloading the map or picking one up from the Tourist Information Center next to the train station.

The many and varied aspects of this walk are as good as your personal walk preparation and fitness. A mainly flat walk that can be any distance, ie local to Barmouth Area or many miles. To cross the railway bridge over the Estuary and set off and view old WW2 training areas, wild birds, sea birds and following the old rail tracks is a true traditional walking experience. A big plus is good quality clean toilets on the walk.

Feb 2015. Cold, blustery, tidal storm, good food in The Ship Inn and live music and everyone is friendly even to us English. Beautiful countryside, great walks, particularly the beach at sunset. Get away from it all and enjoy our country out of season.

This isn't well advertised , but well worth a walk, it walks up through beautiful woodlands with bats, birds and lots of rabbits etc .. The summit takes in the spectacular views of Barmouth & estuary etc .. Depending on number of photos you take it'll be around 50min walk up ..

We explored the heritage trail, but the path up the hillside is quite hard to follow, with no waymarking, and steep. But worth it!
