A Family Walk in Nature – 2018

Sunday 20th May, 2018

A Family Walk in Nature

A family activity walk (although everyone is welcome) which will combine environmental games and activities with tales about the area’s human and natural history.  We will walk up from Trefriw Village Hall, via the Fairy Falls following the Afon Crafnant into the beautiful bluebell-filled fields and ancient woods of the Crafnant valley, where amongst many other things we will go on minibeast safaris, scavenger hunts, have a little forage for wild food, hug a few trees, walk barefoot, maybe make shelters, play hide and seek and just enjoy ourselves. The structure of the day and the focus of the activities will depend on the group demographics … and the weather.

We’ll be back in time for our now-legendary Cake Fest.

Duration: about 5 hours.   Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  3 miles / km

Grade:  Easy, the walk will not be strenuous and will mostly follow good paths but at times we will at move away from paths and tracks onto rougher ground so suitable footwear is required.

Meet:  10.15 a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)

Walk Leaders:  Pete Kay and Cat Schentinga

Trefriw’s Classic Two Lakes – 2018

Sunday 20th May, 2018

Trefriw’s Classic Two Lakes

Join us for the walk that attracts many visitors to Trefriw– the classic round of Llyn Crafnant and Llyn Geirionydd. From Trefriw we ascend past the Fairy Falls and onto the edge of Gwydir Forest. Gwydir Forest was mentioned in written texts at least 500 years ago, and we’ll certainly witness some of its history, passing old mine works, the infamous Klondike mill and the monument to the bard, Taliesin.

The views from both lakes are stunning so do bring cameras. We’ll take a break for lunch and there will be plenty of opportunity to talk to your guides about the area along the way. After completing our loop of the two lakes we’ll head back to the Trefriw. If the seasons are kind to us, we’ll take in the vast and stunning field of bluebells as we return to the village.

We’ll be back in time for our now-legendary Cake Fest at 4 p.m.!

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  about 6.5 miles / 10.5 km

Grade:  Moderate, but leisurely

Meet:  10.30 a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)

Walk Leaders:  Brian Watson and Liz Burnside
