Coed Oerddwr Parc y Llys and Hafod Gwyfil rise steeply from the banks of the Afon Glaslyn near Beddgelert. Oak and ash woodland gradually gives way to rough ground with scattered trees in a landscape inhabited by people since prehistory: old dry stone walls and three ancient hut circles survive as reminders of the wood's human past. More recently planted conifer and rhododendron has had an unwelcome impact on this ancient wood. Fortunately gradual restoration work by the Woodland Trust is turning the tide.
