Cader Idris (893 metres or 2930 feet) is a popular focus - though you will meet far fewer fellow walkers here than on the more famous Snowdon. The peak rewards a demanding ascent with thrilling views. The well surfaced and flat Mawddach trail, along the southern margins of the estuary provides a newer, accessible and family friendly route, whilst the Rhinog Range, running north from the estuary, presents more remote challenges for the experienced walker. When clouds shroud the highest peaks, the Coed y Brenin ancient forest is well worth a visit. Follow old miner’s trails to gold and copper mines or watch waterfalls in the heart of the forest become thunderously impressive after heavy rain. The woods offer important habitats to a wide range of flora and fauna (with some extremely rare species), and there are other spectacular walks, orienteering facilities, and an 8 km geology trail.
