This is called the Troll Bridge because you cross the Barmouth Bridge near to the end of this section. There is an actual 'Troll' in the form of an honesty box.

Nothing to crazy on this, the GPX file will be getting up dated as it is slightly wrong. Once near Bryn Y Mor Caravan park you follow the road to where it crosses Afon Dysynni (Cars and Vans can not cross this bridge). The GPX will then also change after the bridge to include the road section s this is the route the signs take you. Part 2 nothing major really, the coastal path on OS maps shows that you run around Fairbourne. The signs on the ground direct you through Fairbourne. To be honest I preferred the route through as there are amenities and shops, good for those without crew.

Ranges from gravel, tracks, tarmac, mud some ankle deep, slippery and jagged rock. Hopefully the track would have dried out by May (but this is Brutal Events, so will most probably be hurricanes and tornados).

Fairly straight forward, coastal path is well signed. Pembrokeshire is the Acorn and Welsh Coastal Route signs. This changes at the RNLI station at Poppit Sands. It is then a Celtic symbol with the Welsh Coastal Path sign. This carries on through St Dogmaels, (be aware in St Dogmaels some signs are missing, but the bracket is still there and you can work out the route to take.) Once you go over the stone arch bridge close to CP3, this then changes to the Ceredigion sign and Welsh coastal path sign. Pay attention when entering built up areas, as the signs can be hard to see.

Never follow the signs with a lone figure as this is just a general walking route. The only time you should follow it is when it is with a coastal path sign.

If using the GPX file, it is fairly accurate. A few times it will say you are off route. But if you’re on a well defined track, then you’re right and it will bring you back on course. For the recce, I used the coastal signs and only used the Garmin to check the route.

If you’re using crew, there are numerous places along the route that they can get to you for aid between the main CPs. Be aware some of the roads are narrow and single lane traffic.

Toilets are sparse, so use them when you see them!
