From the Aberdyfi seafront car park, head to the west of the town passing below the railway bridge, a signpost marks the start of the route with the path initially climbing above the town past the supposed site of a castle.

Continue westwards around the summit of the hill to Trefeddian Farm and onwards until you follow the line of a small river past the southern edge of the farmyard at Crychnant.

Continue along the track until it merges with the road. Then when you see the signage for the Wales Coast Path, leave the road and descend back to Aberdyfi.

Please note the walk has some manageable uphill sections and a reasonable descent on the return leg. Please follow the Countryside Code at all times - https://naturalresources.wales/days-out/the-countryside-codes/?lang=en
