About Cors Caron National Nature Reserve

Cors Caron National Nature Reserve is managed by Natural Resources Wales. For full details of the visitor facilities here (including trail lengths and grades) and information about any changes or temporary closures to trails or other facilities please go to our website.

Cors Caron National Nature Reserve is a vast area of wetland filling the broad valley of the River Teifi near Tregaron.

The three raised bogs are world famous – areas of deep peat that have built up over the last 12,000 years. They are some of the most intact examples of raised peat bogs in Britain, with millions of cubic metres of peat up to ten metres deep.

The River Teifi and its floodplain form the centre of the reserve and is internationally important in its own right as a European Special Area of Conservation (SAC); the extensive floodplain feels wild and remote.

The route of the old Aberystwyth to Carmarthen railway running along the margin of Cors Caron has developed a wide range of habitats since the railway’s closure in the 1960s.

The rich mix of habitats at Cors Caron makes the reserve a fantastic place for wildlife. Red kite, hen harrier, curlew and skylark can fill the skies above the reserve, whilst the bog itself bustles with dragonflies, lizards and otters.

WALKING TRAILS

The Cors Caron Walk includes a fully accessible boardwalk over some of the most impressive parts of the bog. It takes you to the large bog hide, which is also accessible, where you can enjoy a peaceful view of the landscape and wildlife.

This Riverside Walk is a circular route along the riverbank and through the heart of Cors Caron. It can be muddy and is closed if flooded. It is also closed during the summer due to grazing. No dogs are allowed on this trail.

MULTI-USER TRAIL

Walkers, cyclists and horse riders may use the Old Railway Walk. This trail follows a disused railway which provides a firm surface suitable for wheelchairs.

It is a “there-and-back” route to the Old Station Yard at Ystrad Meurig and gives good views over much of Cors Caron. Sustrans National Cycle route 82 (part of the Ystwyth Cycle Trail from Tregaron to Aberystwyth) follows this trail.
