.... Precipice walk ....

Valley towards the sea

View along the valley.

As the path continues to bear to the left you come to the path along the contour on the steep slope which gives the walk its name. There are wonderful views down onto the Mawddach running its course along the narrow valley. The cars on the main road looks like toys.

Further still and the Mawddach estuary opens up with views down to the village of Llanelltyd, the Penmaenpool bridge and to the Barmouth bridge and the sea.

As you round each bend more of the Cader Idris massif appears until the whole range is visible. At one point on the walk, if you are lucky with a clear day, you can see Snowdon in the distance in one direction, and the nearby mass of Cader in the opposite direction.
