Sarn Sabrina Based on the Celtic myth of Sabrina, a water nymph said to inhabit the waters of the Severn, we have created a 25 mile circular route taking in Llanidloes, the Llyn Clywedog and the source of the river high up on the slopes of Plynlimon. The Sarn Sabrina Walk is both a one day challenge walking event held on the last Saturday in May and a trail that can be walked over a number of days for you to savour the beautiful views the route encompasses. The Semi-Sabrina is approx 12 miles in length, and is a shorter version of the walk taking in Glyndwr’s Way and the Llyn Clywedog Nature Trail.

There are a number of viewing points arranged along the circular drive around the lake that allow the visitor to make the most of the wonderful panoramic views.
