How to get there?
Turn off the A487 by Minffordd Hotel, following the B4405 for a few yards, and you will see Dôl Idris car park on the right. This is also the starting point for Minffordd trail up Cader Idris.

What is special about this walk?
This trail is a circular path from Dôl Idris car park. The land was given to the National Park Authority by Mr Ivor Idris in the early 1980s. His family produced the ‘Idris’ soft drinks, and the remains of the laboratory can still be seen at the site.

During 2004-5, the site was changed, and various parts of the path were improved.  The site was officially opened by Lord Dafydd Elis Thomas AM in July 2004. In 2006-7, the path was extended by another 645 metres. This section of the path is also accessible.


  • There is a designated accessible parking area and toilets adjacent to the trail.
  • The path itself is flat and is suitable for people of all physical abilities. There are also four accessible picnic tables on the path.
  • Visitor Centre and tea Room (seasonal)
