This relatively easy walk is mainly on minor roads and tracks. There are no steep climbs and the views are superb. The road passes through some ancient woodland and there are tree-creepers here as well as redstarts. The lake attracts herons and ted kites are a common sight.

Note that there is a stream crossing just after waymark 2 which may be difficult or even impossible after rain.

Just a warning that when you get to Treheslog Farm as a previous person has already commented about, When they did the walk in 2015 we were doing this walk in March 2022. We don't worry about dogs loose in farmyards normally but as we came through the 5 bar gate into the farm yard area I saw a person walking towards us but after turning and shutting the gate behind us he had disappeared so we continued through the farmyard, there were several cages near the house with quite a few young friendly dogs in as we were walking past all of a sudden about 8 dogs all very unfriendly appeared, they were surrounding us and we're not at all nice snarling and showing no fear trying to bite our legs fortunately we had walking poles and managed to fend them off but this was very scary. We then heard someone calling them who was the person I had previously seen as we came through the 5 bar gate!

I did this walk with 2 friends in mid-October 2015. Very pleasant scenery and easy routefinding, and we crossed the stream without difficulty (although walking poles do help over the slippery rocks). However, on approaching Treheslog Farm on the bridle path we were joined by around 8 young dogs that were loose around the farm. They were friendly and no problem at all. However, on arriving at the farmyard gate there were around 5 older dogs loose in the yard, one of which was barking, growling, snarling and showing its teeth at us. We chose discretion over valour and retraced our steps, accompanied by the friendly young dogs back as far as the road. Maybe it was in fact entirely safe for us to enter the farmyard, but other than a "Dogs loose" notice there was nothing to suggest this, and nobody emerged from the farmhouse despite all the dogs barking loudly. This walk is most certainly not 'dog friendly'! We understand that right of way access through farms may be less assured in Wales than England, and accordingly this route is not a good advertisement for walking there.

On reaching the "stream" at waymark 2 we found it to be wider than we expected. While seeking a way for me to cross my husband fell in due to rocks being very slippery. (Not much harm done) There had been some rain overnight but not excessive and the day was fine. Just a warning to be prepared to turn back at this point. Otherwise lovely walk with several red kites.
