CLOSED: Yellow walk

Walking trail

This route is currently closed. The 100mph wind gusts brought by Storm Arwen, sadly felled hundreds of our trees. Trees, broken branches and debris are blocking most of our paths making them unsafe for visitors to walk on. We're working to clear the paths as quickly as we can, but given the scale of the damage, this will take months. Please bear with us while work takes place.
