In the middle of this image, to the left (west) of the river, the stony track leads to Dolgoch hostel, hidden behind trees, bottom left. To east of the river is the former drover's road from Tregaron to Abergwesyn, now much used by drivers when it is not frozen over.
The Tywi Forest
The Tywi Forest is a very extensive area of coniferous plantation mainly established in the 1960s over what had been, in the main, open moorland. Abandoned post-Medieval settlements and Bronze Age monuments reveal that this landscape was more intensively populated and used in the past. With many of the trees being well over forty years old, felling is in progress in many parts of the forest, including here, hence the good condition of many of the stony forestry roads. Young trees are also becoming well established in many of the cleared areas.
