Thursday Walk: Rhinog Fach
The area and details of the meet
The next walk is Walking Britain Walk 2544, Rhinog Fach Circular. Meet in the car park OS Ref SH684302 at 10.30 am.
It is best travelling to Bala, then A41212 to Trawsfynydd, then A470 south. At OS Ref 713306 turn right down a minor road to the edge of the forest. If you get to the Forest Centre on the A470 you have gone too far.
The walk is 8 miles, 2200 ft ascent. The path south west takes us between Rhinog Fawr & Rhinog Fach. At Bwlch Drws-Ardudwy we descend into a valley, then climb steeply to Llyn Cwmhosan, higher still to Llyn Hywel. Should the weather be good, for a change, we will have excellent views of Y Llether & the Cambrian coast. The summit of Rhnor Fach will be reached soon after. We continue in an anticlockwise direction back to the cars.
