About Coed y Brenin | Forest Garden
This is a small car park under Norway spruce trees and the gateway to the Forest Garden Discovery Trail, where you can experience trees from all over the world, some with fascinating facts on secret signs.
Listen to the story of a local witch and a demon's tree on our wind-up 'sound stores'. There is a separate car park for disabled users before you get to the main car park with direct access to the all ability trail Forest Garden Discovery Trail.
It starts from the disabled car park and is built to all-ability standards with an easy gradient that is suitable for wheelchair users.
FOREST GARDEN DISCOVERY TRAIL (½ mile, 0.6 kilometres)
From the main car park follow the green waymarkers down to the bridge over the Afon Babi. Visit the viewpoint and then meander along the series of informal paths looking out for the tree-fact posts and folklore audio stores. The garden is criss-crossed with a series of 1m wide formal and informal paths, some steep and uneven. There are no steps or stiles.
FOREST GARDEN ACCESSIBLE TRAIL (¼ mile, 350m)
Follow the blue waymarkers from the accessible car park over the bridge and through the lower part of the forest garden. At the viewpoint, overlooking the waterfall, listen to the story of Pont Llam yr Ewig (Bridge of the Stag’s leap). The accessible trail is a flat well-surfaced 2m wide path suitable for wheelchairs with resting places at least every 100m. There are no steps or stiles.
