Beddgelert Forest Walks
V4.1 updated 2/4/05
Forest Enterprise ( previously known as the Forestry Commission) runs a well-appointed campsite in Beddgelert Forest. Access is roughly a mile from Beddgelert on the A4085 to Caernarfon. Numerous walks have been made available to the public. Wooden posts with numbers designate way-marked locations. The map is available for 50p from the Beddgelert Forest Campsite Reception.
Although the current forest was planted in 1926 by the Forestry Commission, there was a previous forest in the area. The incomplete works of the PBSSR were used in WWI to extract timber from Cwm Du to Rhyd Ddu and from Ty'n-y-coed (including a short lived incline in the woods) to a point next to the main road near the incomplete PBSSR Beddgelert main road bridge.
