Ten Lakes – 2017

Saturday 20th May, 2017

Ten Lakes

Back by popular demand, this is our longest walk – a full day from Trefriw into the Gwydir Forest, visiting 10 of the area’s hidden lakes.

Starting and finishing with the largest and best-known lakes in the area – Geirionydd and Crafnant – this long round from Trefriw will visit a total of 10 lakes in the Gwydir Forest, many with history linked to local metal-mining.  Much of the walk is in the upper, elevated part of the forest, offering excellent views of the mountains, The pace will be easy, and uses a lot of good forest tracks, but is rated as moderate/strenuous simply by virtue of its length. We will be passing toilets at 2½ miles, 10½ miles and 12½ miles.

Duration:  All day 7-8 hrs walking.    Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  24 km / 15 miles

Grade:  Moderate/strenuous

Meet:  9.15 a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)

Walk Leaders:  Tony Ellis, author of four local walking books, and a Voluntary Warden on Snowdon
                                 Colin Boyd, Outdoor Education specialist
