Pen-y-Gaer to the sea

Sunday 19th May, 2019

The minibus will take us to Pen y Gaer, an Iron Age fort overlooking the Conwy Valley, from where we’ll walk to the sea at Conwy. Initially we pass through an area of ancient standing stones and burial chambers, to then follow part of the North Wales Path to Sychnant Pass before descending over Conwy mountain.  And once there, hopefully there’ll be time for an ice cream on the quay, if we fancy it, before the minibus returns us to Trefriw, in time for our now-legendary Cake Fest at 4 p.m.!

The walk will reward us with splendid views.

Duration:  A full day. Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink.

Distance:  about 8 miles (13 km)
