Riverside Walk (1 mile, 1.7 kilometres).
This mainly level woodland trail goes alongside the scenic river Gorlech, over a humpback bridge and then returns along the forest road.
Gorlech Walk (3.5 miles, 5.7 kilometres).
This delightful trail follows the River Gorlech along forestry roads before crossing a small bridge on to a footpath and climbing uphill through mature woodlands made up of mixed broad leaf trees and conifers.
Forest Garden Walk (5 miles, 8.3 kilometres).
This trail goes to Brechfa Forest Garden. The forest garden is made up of half of the tree species that are able to grow in the British Isles. They were planted by the Forestry Commission in the last century to assess how well they grew in Britain.
The picnic area at its start point is also the ideal place in which to leave your car. This site has portaloo toilets, which are open all year.
