Long Distance Trail walking in Ceredigion
Long distance trails:
The Ceredigion Coast Path (Cardigan to Ynyslas), 60 miles, was officially opened in July 2008 (Ceredigion Coast Path). It is now part of the 870-mile All Wales Coast Path (Chepstow to Chester) opened in May 2012 (Wales Coast Path)
Glyndwrs Way passes through north Ceredigion (135 miles, Knighton to Welshpool) (Glyndwrs Way)
More locally, the Borth to Strata Florida walk, at least 41 miles, provides a great introduction to the area
The challenging, 298 miles, Cambrian Way also passes through the Cambrian Mountains in north Ceredigion (Cambrian Way)
Information and Safety on our walks
On all walks we will encounter sheep and therefore the Group requests walkers not to bring their dogs. An exception would be made for Registered Assistance Dogs, in which case the Walk Leader should be contacted to ensure the walk is suitable (e.g. access over stiles, rough ground etc).
All our leaders are well supported within the group and we would welcome new leaders. We provide training and updating events for leaders from time to time, and also mentoring for Ramblers who are new to leading walks.
