This GPX route will take you from Rhayader to Machynlleth via the infamous Strata Florida and Machynlleth Horseshoe. This route absolutely requires a well-prepared 4×4 and experienced driver, and these lanes must not be driven alone. Weather conditions must be checked prior to driving Strata Florida, as the depth and speed of water flowing through the many river crossings can become dangerous very quickly. It is strongly advised to carry appropriate recovery and communications equipment and to check the weather conditions and river levels before attempting Strata Florida.
Strata Florida is subject to frequent restrictions, so the status of the lane must be checked prior to driving.
