    Route Description for Parc Bryn Bach Circular Walk

    The main downside to the Parc Bryn Bach Circular Walk is that the route just isn’t long enough, although it is a circular route, so you can always complete a few laps around the water if you wish to walk a longer distance. Be sure to keep your dog on a lead at all times, as there will be plenty of other walkers and wildlife, such as geese and ducks, in the area. Additionally, you will want to arrive early in order to secure parking.

    Although the walking paths will likely be busy, this is an excellent route that will showcase the natural beauty of the 340 acre park. Scenic views across the water, plentiful wildlife, and well-maintained pathways make this an ideal adventure for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. Don’t forget to pop into the Parc Bryn Bach Cafe near the trailhead for a quick snack at the beginning or end of your time on the Parc Bryn Bach Circular Walk.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way to the southeast along the water’s edge, passing by the cafe and parking area as you gaze out across the calm surface of the water. As you make your way around the shores of the lake, you will have a nice view of the surrounding forests, as well as the intermittent stretches of grassland between them. Keep right along the trail for the entirety of its length to continue along the water’s edge, which will eventually bring you back to the car park having completed the Parc Bryn Bach Circular Walk.
