Section affected by Storm Arwen

Route: Leannach Forest circuit

Date walked: 23/01/2022

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 8km

Ascent: 180m

We had hoped this would be an easy stroll along a forestry track, but we hadn't counted on the remains of Storm Arwen (Nov 2021). When we walked (late Jan 2022) there was still a section of about 150-200m around NN 49436 05612 with at least 50 large trees fallen across the track. Some were passable, but not all, and eventually we had to detour a long way down the bank and then back up to get past, costing us nearly an hour. We were surprised there wasn't a sign at the trail head - fallen trees can be dangerous and going under them is not always wise.
