Taith Ardudwy Way
35.3 km, 1491 m of climb

Created in 2010 the Taith Ardudwy Way is a linear route joining the railway station at Llandecwyn, just south of Penrhyndeudraeth, to Barmouth.

The route traverses the western slopes of the Rhinog range, and takes in a range of interesting sites such as the Bronze Age ‘Crown of Thorns’ at Bryn Cader Faner, and the old pack-horse bridge at Pont Scethin.

At Cerrig Arthur, the route joins the Mawwdach Way, giving the possibility of combining the two to create a much longer route (around 80 km).

The Trail has reasonable waymarking at principle junctions.
