The Scenic Way Home

We will initially travel up the Conwy Valley from Trefriw to Betws-y-coed by public transport (bus).
From Betws-y-coed, we’ll be walking back to Trefriw, via a most scenic route!  We’ll initially head up through the Aberllyn gorge and then along the shore of Llyn Parc. From here, it’s downhill to Hafna mine, where we’ll probably stop for lunch. The walk then takes us over the highest part of the Gwydir Forest, past some gorgeous lakes with great views over towards the mountains. (Toilets at Llyn Geirionydd.)  This is a gem of a walk at a leisurely pace.
The route will follow a mix of wide forest paths and other paths.

Duration:  All day.    Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  About 8 miles / 13 km

Grade:  Moderate, with a couple of steep sections

Meet:  10.00  a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)  to catch 10.43 bus to Betws-y-coed
Tea and cake will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk. You are welcome to stay and socialise!

(Fare of £3.50 payable on bus, unless you have a pass)

Leaders:  Karen Martindale and Jan Blaszkiewicz
