This is a must visit if you are in the Bewts-y-Coed area. Miles of forest trails to explore. We were walking with two dogs but you can have equally as much fun on a mountain bike. I would highly recommend.

Great place to go, if you love the outdoors. Rain or shine get down there for a walk/hike or bike ride.

Area of tranquility and natural beauty. Not an easy place to get into in a vehicle but it can be done carefully... Once in the forest there are tranquil lakes, ancient trees and evidence of Roman influence. The road running alongside the forest from Treffriw...More

We took a waymarker route for 2 and a half hours and hardly saw a soul. We took the yello footprint route and were treated to a moderate walk with lovely views. And, we had it all to ourselves!
