Views from the High Gwydir

This is a great scenic walk in the higher parts of the edge of the Gwydir Forest, with some lovely open views over the surrounding valleys and over to the mountains of northern Snowdonia.

We’ll go by minibus to Gwydir Uchaf (just 2 miles from Trefriw), then the route heads up to Llyn Park, with elevated views over the Conwy valley, then over to Nant BH, from where it’s possible (in good visibility) to spot nine 3000′ peaks. We pass Llyn Bwlch y gwynt and Llyn Glangors, each offering their own views over to the mountains, then back to Trefriw via Llyn Geirionydd and above the Crafnant valley.

Grade: Moderate, and at a leisurely pace
