a walk from Bala lake to Cynwyd following the upper reaches of the Dee to the Berwyn mountains following the Tegid way.
The walk can be walked in ether directions and using the local bus service to make this a liner walk or completing sections with the excellent bus service in the area. having left my car in Cynwyd catching the X94 to Bala and starting the walk from the my start point at Bala leisure centre with a total distance of 18 miles ahead of me this walk the weather a little over cast but as the day got on the weather became a nice sunny day and perfect walking weather to explore the Dee valley.
lowest section of the walk was Bala lake and the highest and steepest part being the mountain section between Llandrillo and Cynwyd following a length of the Wayfair route into the Berwyn mountains and close to Cadair Bronwen on the mountain track and a steep decent into green lush woods and finally into the village of Cynwyd.
please take care if completing this walk as parts of the route are rough and wet in places and some remote sections.
The mountain section is worth the views form the top., the route is waymarked the full route at time of writing, route map and leaflet can be downloaded -http://www.denbighshirecountryside.org.uk/tegid-way/
using OS Explorer map 255, time i walked in was 7 hours 40 minutes for the full length of the Tegid way.
