Parking

7 Cae Morys, Beddgelert, Caernarfon LL55 4YW No height barriers, large car park but does get very busy as the town and is a big tourist attraction. Chargeable – costs £3.50 for all day parking.

Terrain

Variety of terrain on this walk, hills, riverside, woodland and steep climbs. It can get super slippy in wet weather, still doable but make sure you are wearing proper walking gear.

Water

Lots of water in various parts of this walk, some very fast flowing water at the end of this walk along the river side with uneven rocky trails, not suitable for dogs to swim. But towards the end of the walk there is a bridge with shallow water that is suitable for dogs.

Poo Bins

There are poo bins in the village of Beddgelert but we didn’t see any on our route.

Local Info

The view from the top of the valley was stunning, and on the way back down the hill make sure you stop off at the wonderful wooden bench about half way down and leave a note in the secret hiding box under the seat, such a cute idea and some lovely notes in there. There were no cafes or pubs to stop off at as we worked out way along our route but there were plenty of places to enjoy a packed lunch. Beddgelert is one of the National Park’s most popular and picturesque villages. Its name translates to ‘Gelert’s Grave’ and was inspired by the tale of Gelert, Llywelyn Fawr’s faithful hound. Llywelyn is one of Wales’ most famous princes. Well worth a visit, so thought provoking. We chose one of the wettest days to do this walk and so by the end of it we just wanted to go back to our accommodation and dry out, but there were lots of really cute pubs we liked the look of which were all dog friendly so we will definitely go back to explore on another visit.

Author Review

The village does get very busy but as soon as you are out on the route we hardly saw anyone. Lots of off lead opportunities and water spots for dogs to splash about in. Loved all of this walk but it was certainly tricky in places, especially towards the end alongside the water, but worth every careful step.
