This walk goes up through Cwm Bychan, with its remote scenery and the remains of the old copper mining. It is historically interesting, as it is difficult to imagine the activity of the intensive mining in the past. The view as you reach the highest point is worth the climb.

After dropping down to Llyn Dinas, the rest of the walk is low level and flattish but the section on the Fisherman's Path, down through the second half of the Aberglaslyn Pass is fairly rocky underfoot. However, the views of the gorge are spectacular. The path is not as challenging as it once was, having been 'improved'.

You can visit Beddgelert before starting on the Fisherman's Path, where there are several pubs and cafes.

We really enjoyed this walk. The path is very well maintained and it is impressive to see how much work has gone into building it with boulders and steps created in parts. The views were fabulous and it is possible to visit the copper mine and Beddgelert en route. One has to tread carefully along the Fishermans Path but it is not too tricky and a lovely view of the river along the way.

This is an absolutely delightful walk with stunning views and lots of interest, including the possibility of visiting a pub or cafe in Beddgelert towards the end. The Fisherman's Path is not as difficult as it once was. The handholds are still there but the pathway has clearly been widened and we didn't need to use them at all.

Ref 594468 states "there is is one very difficult stretch almost needing rock climbing skills" My wife and I were about to attempt this walk but felt that this remark may mean unmentioned drops. I have no doubt this is an excellent walk but more clarification on the above in the main descriptioon may be beneficial for less experienced walkers The walk itself sounds superb.

A lovely walk that we did in abot three and a half hours - long but well worth it!
