Arthog Visitor Information
In earlier days Arthog served a cluster of slate quarries, the remains of which can still be seen on the hills behind the village. Many will know the village from time spent at the Arthog outdoor education centre, a facility owned by Telford and Wrekin Council, and visited by generations of school groups over the years.
Arthog is well positioned for outdoor activity, especially walking, and public footpaths connect the village to the Mawddach Trail, Arthog Falls, Cadair Idris and Cregennen Lakes.
The Mawddach Trail is also a popular (and forgivingly flat) cycle way which connects with Barmouth and Dolgellau. For those looking for a tougher ride, the Mawddach Trail forms part of the less forgiving Mawddach Big-8.
For something a little different, why not explore some of the remains of 20th century military activity in the area. From hill-top memorials to beach defences, there are over 50 different sites in and around the Mawddach Estuary to be explored on foot, by bike or by car. See here for further details.
