Summary: The Mawddach Trail (Welsh: Llwybr Mawddach) is a walking/ cycle route, part of Lôn Las Cymru, which runs for some 8 miles (13 km) from Dolgellau to Morfa Mawddach railway station by Barmouth bridge on the Cambrian coast. It can be walked or cycled in either direction. (Note: the attached route files are for making the journey from Barmouth to Dolgellau). The Mawddach Trail is maintained by the Snowdonia National Park and is popular with walkers and cyclists alike. It passes some estuarine areas that are important for water birds, and the RSPB Information Centre at Penmaenpool makes use of the old signal box as an observation centre overlooking the estuary. The cycle route is a rail trail running along the former trackbed of the Ruabon to Barmouth branch line of the Great Western Railway. This line closed under the Beeching Axe in the 1960s.
