This is a wonderful walk with fantastic views, but don't go on a very hot, sunny day. The path is very narrow so make sure your dogs behave or you could go over the edge with a very, very long drop down. Take bottles of water as the walk takes some time and wear good walking shoes/boots.

We walked this walk for the second time in 2013 over Christmas. It's an amazing walk with great views with minimal effort. It's definitely worth it, you can see across the hills to Coed y Brenin, down to the estuary in Barmouth and across to Cadar Idris.

This is a relatively easy walk. The views are breathtaking - encompassing Cader Idris, the Aran mountains and the surrounding hills, the Mawddach Estuary all the way down to the sea at Barmouth and, looking north, the river valley towards Trawsfynydd. On a clear day, it is even possible to see Snowdon in the far distance. The walk provides a bird's eye view of Dolgellau and its neighbouring villages . A really lovely walk for any season of the year.

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.

This walk could not be better. Relaxing, easy walking, stunning views, good level paths and so so quiet. At every turn there is a new sight to behold - from the Trawsfynydd power station in the distance one way, the sea at Barmouth the other, and the traffic on the road 800 foot below. The beginning and end of the walk takes you away from the precipice to a lovely reservoir, sheep and gorgeous countryside. I will definitely visit again. You will never forget this walk..........just remember to take your camera.
