Ystwyth Trail

32 km / 20 miles

Ceredigion
Opened the the end of June 2008 the Ystwyth Trail connects Abertystwyth on the shore of Ceredigion's Bay with Tregaron in the northern Teifi Valley. Substantial sections of the Trail follow the track of the old Great Western railway line. The trail is a 34 km scenic cycleway, bridleway & footway linking Aberystwyth with Tregaron. Following the Ystwyth River for most its journey along the Ystwyth Valley, the trail winds through some of the UKs finest countryside offering breathtaking views within landscapes that dramatically change with the season of the year.

The Ystwyth Trail links other walking routes within Ceredigion, connecting Tregaron and the upper Teifi Valley with the Ceredigion Coast Path and providing a northerly return route for individuals following the linear footpath that extends between Borth and Tregaron via Devil's Bridge, Cwm Ystwyth, Pontrhydygroes and Pontrhydfendigaid.

For details follow the links on the Ceredigion County Council web site.
