From Hafod another waymarked route leads to Cwmystwyth and over the hills towards Ponterwyd.to Ponterwyd.

Here you can walk up Pumlumon (752m) or take the easy way along the Nant-y-moch Reservoir and through the mountain gorges to Machynlleth. More choices: over Cader Idris (893m) or up the Corris valley to the Centre for Alternative Technology and through the slate quarries. Cymmer is just north of the pretty market town of Dolgellau.
