This walk takes you through all the environments that Elan Valley has to offer. It's a wonderful way to experience the estate ... if you're up for the challenge!
From the visitor centre you will walk past every one of the dams, follow rivers & reservoirs, explore woodland, climb hills, and finally return to the start point by tracing the old railway line that was used during dam construction.
This is our most technical route and you are often far from roads so a map and compas is a must. Also bear in mind that you will need an early start if you intend to get back to the visitor centre for a cup of tea before closing time!
