This is a very satisfying walk, with plenty of variety and beautiful views. The memorial to the broadcaster William Vaughan-Thomas provides a good spot for a lunch break. The walk is well marked and the route directions are clear and easy to follow. The only tricky bit is where it says "Turn right along the road for about half a mile, then turn right along a track signed 'Nature Reserve', with Glaslyn visible in the distance. A further half-mile on, there is a right turning along another stony track, which you will bear down shortly, but it’s worth continuing the short distance to Glaslyn, bearing right at the next fork." You might miss the 2nd right turning mentioned -- it is signposted but the path is a sharp right back upwards, so you might unknowingly pass it by. For anyone seeking a walk that is moderate in distance and difficulty but not at all moderate in its pleasures, I recommend this walk, with thanks to those who wrote it up.
