This map shows Llyn Trawsfynydd (Lake Trawsfynydd) in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. It is located in the West of the Park in the South of Gwynedd, close to the village of Location of Llyn Trawsfynydd Lake in  WalesTrawsfynydd.

Trawsfynydd is Wales' third largest lake and you can fish the lake for wild native brown trout, rainbows, perch or rudd. Fishing Boats are available for hire and fishing permits and further details are obtainable from the newsagents in Trawsfynydd.

The area is close to the ancient trade route for Bronze Age travellers to and from Ireland en route to Wiltshire - and Stonehenge, the cultural centre of Britain in those days. Many examples of cairns, megaliths, roundhouses and hut enclosures support the evidence of pre-historic settlements in the area. There is an iron age settlement at Crawcwellt nearby and evidence of both prehistoric and medieval settlements to be found at Cefn y Clawdd 2 to 3 miles South of Trawsfynydd. Other attractions close by include the remains of a Roman military complex and the site of a medieval Norman Castle at Tomen y Mur about 3 miles North of Trawsfynydd.

A few miles further South of the lake, via the A470, is the Coed y Brenin Forest with what are probably Wales' and indeed the UK's best known Mountain Bike Trails. The visitor Centre is at Maesgwm near Ganllwyd and offers three fully way-marked mountain bike trails of varying difficulty and duration including the Red Bull Trail and the Karrimor Trail plus fun and sports routes. The centre gets over a 100,000 visitors a year but it's a big area so you won't feel overcrowded.
