Yellow Buzzard logoTaith Ardudwy Way

39 km / 24 miles

Gwynedd
Taith Ardudwy Way is a well signposted upland pathway of 24 miles from Barmouth in the south to Llandecwyn in the north. The route is divided into three sections, each with a leaflet; Southern: Barmouth to Tal y Bont (8 miles); Central: Tal y Bont to Harlech (13 miles); Northern: Harlech to Llandecwyn (12 miles).

The Way traverses Ardudwy, an ancient commote, an administrative area in the Middle Ages. It visits each of the parishes bordering Cardigan Bay and crosses the geological formation of Cambrian Rocks, amongst the oldest in Wales, known as the Harlech Dome. The Way is chosen to take in some of the best coastal and mountain views in Wales, visiting prehistoric sites and it offers the chance to see the varied vegetation and rare birds of the area.

The Way is mostly on quiet lanes, tracks, and pathways all of which are waymerked with the Buzzard logo. Leaflets for the route, with more information together with maps and route instructions, may be downloaded free from the website listed below. Links are described from the main route to Tal y Bont and Harlech to walk the route in the three sections, enabling options. This is mainly an elevated route with no facilities once the starting points are left.
