“A great ride”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Myself and hubby rode from Dollgelau to Barmouth, we are over 50's and not every day cyclists,reading the reveiws we decided that this sounded just up our street. It was a nice sunny day and we took our time and did it in about 1and 1/2 hours.The scenary was great the only down side was the dusty loose chipping track,once we got to barmouth we were filthy which we were not expecting, hope this helps others decide to complete this route as we did both ways.

“Safe and scenic”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

We've walked the full length of this trail a few times - from Penmaenpool end - the pubs and fish and chip shops in Barmouth being the motivation to finish!
It's well used by walkers and cyclists, although never seems to get too busy and other users are usually very friendly with a 'hello' or 'thank you' if you move for them on their bikes
Surprisingly, we've never seen a great deal of birdlife but the scene and the light is ever changing and it's well worth the effort. On a hot and sunny day there is a good deal of cool shade under overhanging trees on some stretches. Nice and flat too, if, like me, the suspension in your knees isn't as good as it used to be.

“It doesn't get much better”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

On a sunny day this walk was stunning, lovely wide trails that would be perfect for families with bikes/pushchairs/on foot... It was easy to match up ending the walk in Barmouth with a bus back to Dolgellau and it's a lovely village to end up in. Plenty to explore on rote and countless photo opportunities!
