Length - 6.1 miles / 9.9 km

Ascent - 1400 feet / 424 metres

Time - 4 hours 30 minutes

Grade - moderate

This strenuous Ceredigion walk from Cwmtydu uses the Wales Coast Path to explore the area south of the village. The outward route uses the inland variation of the coast path. Reaching the coast near Trwyn Crou, the path then crosses a steep and precipitous hillside above the cliffs to reach over 500 feet above the sea. The final section along the coast offers a fine view north along the coast to New Quay and beyond. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description). A route profile is also provided.

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers. Travel restrictions for exercise in Wales and Scotland will be lifted in early July.
