This is only a short walk but offers some fantastic views none-the-less. The route starts off in a lay-by car park along the A5 and heads along the south side of Llyn Ogwen all the way to the waterfalls at its western side, which are quite spectacular.

The route turns right and starts following the lake's northern shore. This is the best place to get some cracking views up to the most recognisable mountain here; Tryfan. The peak rises like a shark's fin and can be very intimidating from this angle.

The route continues along the lakeshore to complete a full circuit of the lake.

Attempted this walk 5th March 2016. We got to waypoint 2 and negotiated the style, it has quite a drop the otherside. However we did not manage the next bit as it involved a little climb down some very slippery rocks and back up the otherside. Probably a bit more than we were expecting on an easy walk. We did see a younger fitter walker manage it though so it was by no means impassable. We walked back down the road side of the lake. Beautiful scenery though and we enjoyed our visit. We saw a Comeraunt fishing in the lake.
