NCN Lon Cambria

Mid Wales, Welshpool, Powys, SY20 8TG, Wales

Lôn Cambria crosses the heart of Mid Wales between Aberystwyth and Shrewsbury.

From the Victorian seaside resort of Aberystwyth this spectacular route crosses the heart of Mid Wales through the Cambrian mountains and alongside the beautiful Elan Valley reservoirs to Rhayader.

With red kites soaring above, the route follows quiet lanes linking the picturesque market towns of Llanidloes, Newton and Welshpool.

A final climb on the Roman Road over Long Mountain offers panoramic views before descending into Shrewsbury with its rail connections for the journey home. A great cycle short break.

Access the route using the Cambrian Rail line.
