The Mawddach Trail alongside the Afon Wnion
Most of the Mawddach Trail, between Morfa Mawddach and Dolgellau follows the trackbed of the former Ruabon to Barmouth railway line, closed in the 1960s. However in the 1970s a bypass was built along the line in the vicinity of Dolgellau. Fortunately an alternative route has been found alongside the river Wnion to take walkers and cyclists into the town centre.
National Cycle Route 8
Route 8 of the National Cycle Network, also known as Lôn Las Cymru, runs for 436km (271 miles) between Cardiff and Holyhead via Brecon, Builth Wells, Machynlleth, Porthmadog and Bangor. Between Machynlleth and Porthmadog there are alternative routes - one coastal, the other inland via Dolgellau, Coed y Brenin and Trawsfynydd.
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).
