Tan Y Bwlch to Pendinas
This was a pleasant three-mile loop walk that takes you along the Ystwyth river and up the top of Pendinas.
Starting from the harbour at Trefechan, walk halfway along the pebble beach at Tan Y Bwlch until you get to the turn off that takes you along the southern bank of the Ystwyth Rriver to Rhydyfelin. The return path back from Rhydyfelin takes you along the Ystwyth cycle path. As you walk back to Trefechan - a path off to the right takes you up to the top of Pendinas and to the Iron Age Fort overlooking Aberystwyth. The Fort comprises of two sections and has clearly defined ramparts. At the top is the Wellington Monument - built in 1852 to celebrate the Battle of Waterloo. Spectacular views of Cardigan Bay, Snowdonia to the north and Aberystwyth town below.
Aberystwyth to Borth
This more adventurous five-mile walk, which starts with the climb up to Constitution Hill at the northern end of the Prom in Aberystwyth, takes you along, up-and-down the cliff path, north to Borth. Return to Aberystwyth is by bus or by train. The funicular cliff railway can be taken to the top of Constitution Hill, where its worth visiting the Camera Obscura as well. The path to Borth can be quite challenging and there are several steep climbs along the way as the track takes you through Clarach, Wallog (where the shingle spit of Sarn Gynfelyn points out into Cardigan bay) and onto Borth. The walk takes a good two and half to three hours and is best done in dry weather. Some walkers prefer to get the train to Borth and to walk back to Aberystwyth.
