A walk down the ‘Afon Dwyfor’

06/02/2020 by

This is a stunning little 2 mile circular walk . Take the first right after the agri Park , drive down the small lane and park up at the far end by the bridge . Take the well signposted footpath on the right hand side of the river . Cross the railway bridge – don’t hang around as the train won’t stop for you. Carry on and just keep the river to your left all the way to the mouth of the estuary . This is a good spot to get the flask of coffee out and take 10 mins to contemplate the meaning of life . Over the mouth you can see Criccieth Castle in the distance. I was sat here once and a group of walkers came towards me from Pwllheli , quite irate as they had missed the turning for the coastal path , one of them started rolling his trousers up , he was going to wade the mouth of the estuary , I just took another mouthful of my dark roast  and politely told him ‘I wouldn’t do that unless you want a nice long ride in a fast boat ‘, he replied ‘what do you mean ‘  well ,  you wade across there and you’ll be a half a mile out to sea in 20 mins and its a bumpy ride back in the ‘atlantic 75 ‘ lifeboat .  Don’t think he saw the funny side as they retraced their steps back to the coastal path.

In any case , after coffee is dispensed with , follow the beach back leaving the sea to your left until you come to the cottage by the sea , follow the steps up and then cut across the fields back to the path , its well signposted – well big red arrows on boulders , cross the railway again and head back to the car .

Again , a lovely little walk .
