Summary: Around the Rhinogs is a very challenging long distance footpath which explores the fascinating and varied country that surrounds the Rhinogs, reputed to be the roughest and wildest mountain range in Snowdonia. This is a claim I will personally testify to, having walked these wild places myself. From the start of the walk at Trawsfynydd the route goes anti-clockwise by initially crossing the Llyn Trawsfynydd footbridge. From here, and in turn, the walk visits Cwm Moch, Bryn Cader Faner Stone Circle, Moel Goedog Settlement, Coed Crafnant Nature Reserve, Afon Artro, Afon Cwmnantcol, Pont Scethin, Braich, Clogau Mine, Afon Cwm-mynach, Foel Ispri (New Precipice Walk), Cym yr Whin, Ganllwyd, Afon Mawddach, Coed Ganllwyd National Nature Reserve, Forests and Sarn Helen before returning to the start in Trawsfynddd.
