A coastal path that links two National Trails of Wales. Heading northward from Cardigan - the junction with the Pembrokeshire Coast Path - the Ceredigion Coast Path extends to the Dyfi Estuary National Nature Reserve at Ynyslas, a stone's throw from Glyndwr's Way which links Machynlleth with Knighton on the Wales-England border.

On its route it visits the resorts of Aberporth, Llangrannog, New Quay - linked to Dylan Thomas, Aberaeron, Aberystwyth and Borth. It crosses Heritage Coastline and National Trust lands, looking out over the UK's first Marine Heritage Coast and the Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation. Parts of the route can be quite strenuous. At New Quay one of the short options on the Dylan Thomas Trail starts at the harbour.
