Tegid Way - 1 or 2 days
Time: approximately 1 or 2 days
Distance: approximately 18 miles
The Tegid Way explores the upper reaches of the Dee Valley from the hills of Cynwyd, to the broad valley where the Dee emerges from Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake). It links two protected landscapes – the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the north, and the Snowdonia National Park to the south. It offers stunning views of the Aran ridge which creates a dramatic backdrop to the lake as well as broad views across the Berwyn Range and Snowdonia.
The route is 18 miles long, but can easily be split into smaller sections by using the local bus service. The first part of the route is the same as the Bala to Llandderfel Trail.
Note that the Tegid Trail is a different trail from Bala to Glanllyn (Llanuwchllyn eventually) close to the shore of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake).
