Leisurely 7 miles / 11.3 km
The Cambrian Coast Railway provides an excellent way to link the ends of this linear Coast Path walk from Llandecwyn to Harlech. The village of Llandecwyn lies on the estuary of the Afon Dwyryd, best seen at low tide when the river winds its way between low sandbanks. Our route sets out alongside the estuary marshes, with views across to Portmeirion backed by the mountains of Snowdonia. We leave the marshes to visit a church on the slightly raised ground of Ynys and then head through fields as the path swings round to the south to cross the low-lying pastures of Morfa Harlech. In the west, the Lleyn Peninsular stretches out into the sea while ahead the views are soon dominated by Harlech Castle, perched high above the fields. We should arrive back at Harlech in good time for the 16:29 southbound train. If you plan to join this walk, please phone the leader beforehand to confirm transport times.
