Start time: 10:00
Moderate 7 miles / 11.3 km
Today’s walk is in the attractive hills to the south of Bala overlooking Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake), following paths and bridleways and enjoying wonderful panoramic views of the lake and the surrounding hills and mountains. We set out from the eastern end of the lake, soon leaving the road to take a path up through woodland. We continue climbing over partly gorse-covered terrain and then through mixed woodland and across upland pastures, eventually reaching open access land and a viewpoint at a height of some 470 metres on Craig yr Allor. From here, weather permitting, we should be able to see the Arans, the Berwyns, the Arenigs and Cadair Idris. After a steady descent through partly cleared forest we walk across the open hillsides of Is-afon and then descend again through fields and past the Bala Lake Hotel to return to the start.
