20th Anniversary Short Walk: Cemmaes Road to Llanbrynmair
A wonderful short walk created as one of a set to celebrate Glyndŵr's Way 20th anniversary.
This 7.25 mile (11.75 km) walk can be walked in either direction and is a great section of Glyndwr’s Way, as it swoops around the hills, along grassy bracken pathways and peaceful tracks.
Cemmaes Road to Machynlleth
A linear route that is best accomplished by using local bus services. Wander across grassy hills grazed by sheep, enjoying fine views of the Dyfi Valley, with the Snowdonia National Park beyond. Look out for interesting old mills beside vigorous rivers while passing through the little villages of Abercegir and Penegoes.

Discover the history of a working canal
Walk a section of one of Britain’s most beautiful and longest rivers. With its wealth of history, wildlife, flat surfaced paths and lack of stiles it's the perfect place to bring the family and your dog.
Start in Newtown and arrive in Welshpool 14 miles later. You can hop on the bus or take a train to get back to Newtown or if you're up for a challenge pick up the Glyndŵrs Way National Trail.

Machynlleth and Parc Circular
Leave the lovely town of Machynlleth to climb steeply into the hills at Parc. Consider making a short detour to Llyn Glanmerin, or simply link with the course of Glyndŵr’s Way and follow it over the hills. A gradual descent, taking in the Roman Steps, leads to a splendid park on the way back to the town centre.
