*July 19 National Ramble – Mawddach Trail

A stunning, predominately linear, ramble alongside the Afons (Rivers) Gwynant (white water) and Mawddach with spectacular views of the Snowdonia mountains and Mawddach estuary. Sightings of heron, cormorants, little egrets, oyster catchers, canada geese, blue tits, chaffinches and mallard ducks. The ramble was mostly on a crushed slate track, wide enough for socialising, but with a bumpier ride through the woods and a very bumpy ride along a bridleway for the lunch loop providing a wonderful view of the combined railway and foot bridge over the mouth of the estuary, against a backdrop of Snowdonia’s mountains. This trail runs on the south side of the estuary so we were predominately in the shade and wet! from plenty of trees and rock formations, plus the whole valley acts as a wind tunnel, surrounded as it is by Snowdonia’s mountains.
