The jumble of stones on the left of the embankment are the remains of a jetty where slate from the quarries in the hills above would have been loaded on to boats.
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).
