Summary: The Dyfi Valley Way is a long distance footpath in Mid Wales. The route runs all the way up one side of the River Dyfi and down the other side. The starting and finishing points, near the river's estuary, are Aberdyfi and Borth. The route follows the north side of the Dyfi through Pennal and the Centre for Alternative Technology at Llwyngwern Quarry. Across the site of King Arthur's last battle at Camlan, the Way takes in the strenuous climb up to the summit of Aran Fawddwy, which at 2,971 ft (906 metres) is the highest peak south of Snowdon. At Llanuwchllyn the route retraces its steps south of the Dyfi through Llanymawddwy and Machynlleth. The walk links with the Meirionnydd Coast Walk at Aberdyfi. The route is partly waymarked, and is highly varied in character: it directs the walker along seldom walked routes. A good map is required and, if possible, a route guide. The Dyfi valley is in Mid Wales and the river's lower reaches are sometimes regarded as the boundary between north and south Wales. (Source: Wikipedia)
