Returning from Dolgellau to Porthmadog, the rain seemed to have taken some time out, so we stopped at Plas Tan-y-Bwlch and took a two hour stroll in the pleasant woodland of Coed Llyn y Garnedd. This was a variant of Alex Kendall's walk 26 in his Cicerone guide to Snowdonia North.
We took the path steeply up from the car park (FOC) and soon crossed the railway line. The sun even came out to illuminate our progress (see above). There were no battles with bracken today.
Our usual path was closed in order to give some nesting ospreys a bit of privacy, so we took a short cut and found ourselves at a viewpoint over the Afon Dwyryd.
