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. The National Trail of Glyndwr's Way also passes beneath the dam before pursuing a course along the southern shore of the lake, making this one of its most picturesque stages.
