Most seasoned walkers will find this walk straightforward and it is done by many people who do not walk regularly. I have chosen to describe the walk in a clockwise fashion around the lake, whereas the visitor centre guide goes the other way. The Walkingworld route has the advantage of facing the oncoming traffic as it were, but also of having the least interesting section along the estate road first. The area is quite wild and open to poor weather - the best time for a visit must be in late summer when the hills are blanketed in heather and clear air gives views to Snowdonia.

We did this walk at the weekend 15/11/14. what a fantastic walk, we were very lucky to go on such a beautiful day- mid November and walking in t-shirts! We had a hearty 'fisherman's breakfast' and a brew at the visitor center, great food with a fantastic view. The walk took a little less than the expected time but we were walking at a bit of a pace due to knowing we would lose the light if we took our time. Spectacular views at every point around the lake. We did however get interupted by lorries and film crews... We were walking on the day before the WRC welsh rally championship was due to arrive so there were sponsor banners, cars, film crews, lorrys, port-a-loos and hazzard tape taking away the 'wild' aspect of this walk. My son found it very exciting though and was a definite plus for him. If we had turned up the day after when the rally was on we couldn't have done the walk as a lot of the path is the rally course so would be off-limits. Something to keep in mind if planning a walk here next year (although my son wished we had turned up on the sunday and spent the day watching the rally!) Great terrain for pushchairs- perhaps not wheel chairs ALL the way round. Toilets still shut at the top of the lake, pay and display car park at visitors center.

28/01/12 - A most enjoyable and relatively easy walk. Very flat, few stiles and easily navigated clear tracks. Great views of Snowdonia. Please note that in winter, the gates to the visitor centre car park are locked at 16:00. Park on the access road if you are going to finish later than this. Also, the toilets at Waypoint 13 are closed 'until further notice'.

Completed this walk with 2 lively Springer Spaniels - only encountered sheep between waypoints 9 and 12
