Dyfi Forest

Details

The Dyfi forest is located mainly to the north of the Afon Dyfi between the towns of Dolgellau to the north and Machynlleth to the south.

Dyfi is a 6000ha forest where rugged peaks loom above the forested hillsides that are dotted with atmospheric ruins and slate spoil heaps. Fast flowing mountain streams cascade down rocky valleys, edged by moss-covered oaks.

Steam trains chug along the hillsides, now carrying holidaymakers, but originally carrying slates from the quarries to the coast. The remains of several old slate mines can still be seen in the area at Abergynolwyn, Corris, Aberllefen/ni and Hendre Ddu.

The spectacular landscape of the Dyfi Forest is well worth exploring and access points to the forest include the village of Abergynolyn, the Tan y Coed Car Park and Foel Friog.

Activities in the forest include picnic sites, walking trails, bridleways and mountain bike trails.
