Dyfi Valley Way

The Dyfi Valley Way in Mid Wales is a long distance footpath running through one of the most beautiful valleys in Wales. This route follows the River Dyfi from the estuary in Aberdyfi to the source at the summit of Aran Fawddwy, which at 2,971ft is the highest peak south of Snowdon. The route then goes back down along the south side of the river via Machynlleth and down to Borth.

A publication called 'The Dyfi Valley Way' by Laurence Main offers detailed maps and route guide.

Another publication called 'Walks in the Dyfi Valley including Aberdyfi, Machynlleth, Dylife, Cemmaes & Borth' by David Perrott offers a range of circular walks on both sides of the valley and surroundings. Clear sketch maps also provided.
