The George III Hotel and Mawddach Trail, Penmaenpool
The road fronting the hotel was once the trackbed of the Ruabon to Barmouth railway line. This was closed in the 1960s and is now a cycle path. The main part of the hotel building was built c1650 as two buildings, with one half becoming a pub and the other a chandlers. The two parts were joined in 1890. The single storey building on the right post-dates the closure of the railway line
The Mawddach Trail :: SH6515
The Mawddach Trail (Welsh: Llwybr Mawddach) is a cycle path following part of the former trackbed of the Ruabon to Barmouth railway line, closed in the 1960s. The trail runs for 8 miles between Dolgellau and Morfa Mawddach railway station, with a continuation across the bridge to Barmouth. For much of its length it runs close to the picturesque Mawddach estuary.

The trail forms part of National Cycle Network Route 8 (Lôn Las Cymru).
