Llyn Tegid/Bala Lake Circular Walk - High Level

26 km / 16 miles

Gwynedd
The High Route is based on the Bala Challenge - an annual charity walk, organised by the Bala & Penllyn Rotary Club. As the route goes higher than the leisure Netowrk there are better views. On the east side of the lake it ascends to Craig yr Allor (470 m) and then descends through forest, while on the west side it crosses pathless moorland (Gwastadros) with www.GoBala.org the highest point Moel-y-Garnedd (360 m) where there are all-round views. For the High Route, good map reading skills are required and the terrain is more demanding, particularly Gwastadros.
