Limited parking, accessible picnic bench.

How to get there?
On the A496 from Dolgellau to Barmouth turn right towards Taicynhaeaf when you reach a crossroad (the turning to your left takes you over Penmaenpool bridge). Drive up the narrow road and when the road forks, bear right and follow the road to the car park. (The nearest post code is LL40 2TU - bear right when the road forks.) The road from the main road to Foel Ispri is extremely narrow with steep slopes in places. There are very few passing places, so you need to be a confident enough driver to reverse along very narrow lengths of road should you need to do so.
