Precipice Walk information

Lonely Planet review

If you’re not up to scaling Cader Idris, this 3.5-mile circular walk through the private Nannau estate is surprisingly varied and offers plenty of beautiful scenery. It leads you through woodland, along the side of a steeply sloped mountain (the precipice in question; keep an eye on the kids) and beside a lake. Walk the loop anticlockwise for the best views of Cader Idris, Snowdon and the Mawddach Estuary. The walk starts from Saith Groesffordd car park, Llanfachreth, around 2.5 miles from Dolgellau (well signposted).
