The Cambrian Way(from Cardiff to Conwy) passes through Devil’s Bridge and Ponterwyd. For full details see Cambrian Way by A J. Drake. Aberystwyth can be reached from the Cambrian Way via any of three different routes:
The Birmingham and Aberystwyth Walk is what it says. It approaches Aberystwyth via Pontrhydygroes, Devils Bridge, and the Rheidol Valley. The book of this title, by John Roberts, was published in 2001 by Walkways Quercus.
The Dyfi Valley Way starts from Aberdyfi on the north side of the Dyfi, goes inland to Bala, and back again to Machynlleth and on to Borth. See Guide to the Dyfi Valley Way by Laurence Main. There is a good connecting cliff top path from Borth to Aberystwyth.
Glyndwr’s Way is an official Long Distance Trail providing two alternative links from Machynlleth to the Offa’s Dyke Path (which goes from Chepstow to Prestatyn). From Machynlleth, Aberystwyth can be reached via the All Wales Coast Path. Further information about Glyndwr’s Way is available here.
Mal Evans Way – Borth to Devil’s Bridge Aberystwyth Ramblers have installed stiles on behalf of Ceredigion County Council to open up a recommended route of some 18 miles of beautiful countryside between the seaside town of Borth (location of a Youth Hostel) and Devil’s Bridge (on the route of the Cambrian Way). This route is known as the Mal Evans Way. A detailed leaflet, produced by Ceredigion County Council, is available from Tourist Offices in the area. Please note:
