Saturday 21st May
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 mod/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
Distance: 24 km/15 miles
Walk Leaders: Tony Ellis author of four local walking books, and a Voluntary Warden on Snowdon
Colin Boyd Outdoor education specialist
Grade: Moderate / Strenuous
