Spirit of the Miners Walks Development Project

Seven new routes have been developed with funding from Spirit of Miners in the Uplands area of Ceredigion and form significant links in the strategic network of routes Ceredigion has been developing over recent years.

Cwmystwyth section of route

Two new linear trails build on the connection previously established Borth to Devils Bridge. A new 10km (6 miles) path climbs from Devil's Bridge before descending to Cwm Ystwyth and proceeding to Pontrhydygroes through the grounds of Hafod. The second linear extension of 13km (8miles) links Pontrhydygroes with Pontrhydfendigaid.

• The remaining five circular trails emanate from settlements and sites of environmental, industrial, historic and cultural significance. These settlements include Bontgoch, Cwmsymlog, Nant Yr Arian, Devil's Bridge and Talybont.
