Summary: The Taith Ardudwy Way is a waymarked upland pathway of around 23 miles in the Rhinogs region of Gwynedd, Wales. The route runs from Barmouth in the south to finish near Llandecwyn Station in the north. The Way traverses Ardudwy, an ancient commote, an administrative area in the Middle Ages. It visits each of the parishes bordering Cardigan Bay and crosses the geological formation of Cambrian Rocks, amongst the oldest in Wales, known as the Harlech Dome. The Way is chosen to take in some of the best coastal and mountain views in Wales, visiting prehistoric sites and it offers the chance to see the varied vegetation and rare birds of the area. The Way is mostly on quiet lanes, tracks, and pathways all of which are waymerked with the Buzzard logo. From start to finish the way visits Barmouth, Gellfawr, Bwlch y Llan, Cerrig Arthur Stone Circle, Bwlch y Rhiwgyr, Pont Fadog, Pont Scethin, flanks of Moelfre, Pont Pen-y-bont, Ffridd Farm, Bryn Cader Faner (Bronze Age 'Crown of Thorns'), Llyn Tecwyn Isaf, Llyn Tecwyn Uchaf and Trem-y-Garth.
