Epic views great swimming in the big lake. Will visit again.

Fantastic views. Exposed in extreme weather. Very hot today. Please can you correct the name of the walk. It should be Llyn.

Fabulous walk with stunning views over many miles. Worth it!

Great route with wonderful views and spectacularly varied terrain. We gave ourselves a four-hour weather window and we almost made it. Using the route here (which has been carefully adjusted to avoid some of Ordnance Survey's better practical jokes) it will be possible to complete the route in much less time than that. The rivers were both very high and the falls were considerably larger and more forceful that normal. We just got wetter than otherwise we might. Our photos were also notable by the amount of brown and orange in the falls which are usually just sparkly white. The descent into Criag y Ddinas is excellent. So is crossing the river behind the water of the Sgwd yr Elra waterfall. Best bit is probably the rooty/rocky section from the footbridge (the northernmost point of the route) and the waterfall crossing. I'd love to do this again on a dry day with more typical river levels!

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk. We started from Stackpole Quay car park (£6all day)Very easy going with no steep climbs .weather was part cloudy about 22 degrees.great views all the way including the cliff tops and round the Lily lakes. Also as an add-on if you get to the Bosherston car park and go out and turn left and there is a cafe and a pub where you can stop for refreshments.also toilets in the car park .all in all great walk about 5 hours altogether because of all the excellent views and photo stops.

Definitely one of the best routes in Snowdonia. A stand alone mountain.

easy six mile stroll. You will pass to beaches, sheet rock cliffs with lots of sea birds we even saw puffins. Then you will go to Lilly pond lake in a wooded area and back round.

Tough, but very rewarding!!!

Christmas morning 2018 searching for Santa

Done this walk 5 or 6 times. Highlights have got to be the lily ponds in Bosherston and the stunning beach at Barafundle. Something for everyone

Reeally good hike but hard though. The last steep section is very impressive. I wouldn't recommend taking dogs or kids as it can be dangerous.

We actually started from our cottage in Dolwyddelan so added a little on to the route but it was a nice route and the paths were easy to find. Dog loved it too...first mountain!

This hike is 50% easy, 30% moderate, and 20% hard when it gets steep with a rocky scramble at the top. We hiked this path with our 10 kg beagle mix, and we only had to carry her over two rough patches. Dogs up for some exercise with the energy should have no problem. Would not recommend for young children as the rocky scramble at the top could be intimidating/too dangerous, it is hard and can be snowy. All in all everything I want from a hike - challenging in parts, very rewarding views the whole way, and right around 6 hours long with a stop for a scenic lunch at the summit. I will also note the trail is fabulously maintained and lightly trafficked. 5 stars.

We've done this part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path many times. Our favourite walk is to park up in the National Trust car park in Bosherston and walk down past the lily Ponds to the beach and then along the cliff top to Stackpole Quay. This isn't a difficult walk and depending on pace and ability is probably about 1.5-2 hours in each direction. The views are breathtaking (literally on a windy day!). The walk along the cliff tops takes you to Barafundle Bay. If you cross the golden sands and climb the steps at the otherside another 10-15 walk find you in Stackpole Quay. Here in the Boathouse Cafe you'll find a range of homemade foods to sustain you for the return trip. We are very well travelled around the UK and across the world, but this is our most favourite walk. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

lovely trail with fantastic views, well worth the effort
