Find Accommodation near 'The Afon Eden Riverside Trail'


Coed y Brenin is a Forestry Commission visitor centre set in the Coed y Brenin forest towards the southern boundary of the Snowdonia National park in Wales. The centre is perched on the hillside with views across the valley towards Cadair Idris which rises to 2927 feet above sea level.

There are several designated all ability trails within the area and the Afon Eden riverside trail starts from the centre itself. The trail which took our researchers 45 minutes to complete, has an excellent wheeling surface and gently snakes down the hillside to the banks of river Eden at the bottom of the valley.
Please note most manual wheelchair users will need the assistance of an able companion to negotiate the return trip up to the centre and we recommend returning the same way as you descended as the path surface is smoother.
