NB Paths on this route may have altered since it was first added to the website and as yet (May 2012) Walkingworld has not been able to find anyone who can verify the route as it stands and would be grateful for any further information relating to this walk or possible problems.

There are many trails in the Brechfa Forest and there are leaflets available at some tourist information centres. This walk follows the Gorlech up a valley before climbing up to higher ground and dropping back down to the village. While in the car park look out for the red oaks near the stream. They have unusual (for oak trees) bark. It is smooth like beech and the leaves, which are quite large, become red in the autumn.

This part of the forest has now been opened up for use by mountain bikes. There were quite a few there on the day we chose for our walk - all having a great time and plenty of exercise. As a consequence there a numerous changes to what is on the ground and whilst we had a lovely walk, we gave up following this route and instead followed the Forestry Commission signposted blue route.
