The spectacular landscape of the Dyfi Forest is well worth exploring. Rugged peaks loom above the forested hillsides that are dotted with atmospheric ruins and slate spoil heaps. Fast flowing mountain streams cascade down rocky valleys, edged by old moss-covered oaks. Steam trains chug along the hillsides, now carrying holidaymakers, but originally carrying slates from the quarries to the coast.
Dyfi forest lies mainly to the north of the Afon Dyfi between the towns of Dolgellau to the north and Machynlleth to the south.
How to get there:
