Ideal for getting that 'up in the hills' feeling without the inconvenience of doing any actual climbing. The Precipice Walk consists of three and a half easily graded miles on good footpaths. Clear signposting ensures there is no possibility of losing one's way. Views of Coed y Brenin, Cadair Idris and the Mawddach estuary are sensational. Those without a head for heights might find the precipice (western) section a little unnerving, though there isn't any exposure to speak of. Pleasant finish along the shores of Llyn Cynwch, a reservoir. Allow a couple of hours. You can park for free - a welcome bonus - in a Snowdonia National Park car park adjacent to the Dolgellau-Llanfachreth road. Toilets here, too.
