We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Basically follows National Cycle Route 8, so you're on quiet backroads most of the time, usually with no pavement but quiet enough for this to be OK. I did it Mach to Dolg, they're building a new flyover in Mach, over the river, so the footpath through the meadow is a bit sketchy but should be maintained during the works. After that, it's backroads up to Corris, passing CAT (centre for alt technology) along the way. Idris Stores in Corris is your last chance to stock up on supplies before you head out past the old quarry in Aberleffeni, and up into the hills. Then it's down the other side, cross the A487, up a little through pleasant wood pasture before descening down to Dolgellau. Overall, a lovely route on foot or bike, and well signposted (NCR8) throughout. Enjoy!.
