Little lakes, Legends and Loads of nature

We will be using a car-share to travel to the start of our walk, which will be at the site of the former Cyffty Mine near Nant Bwlch-yr-Haiarn in the Gwydir Forest. (Cyffty is 4 miles from Trefriw – see the journey here.)

This is a fairly gentle walk, starting at one of the old lead mines of Nant Bwlch-yr-Haiarn. The route will follow a network of lakes formed for this centuries-old industry and explore the wild flowers, nature, history and legends of this unique area. Mainly on well-worn paths and forest tracks, with some short sections on steeper rough ground, we will gradually rise to a natural viewpoint for a lunch break before continuing back to the starting point. After the walk we will return in the cars to Trefriw.

This is a chance to look at nature in the hills with a couple of experts in this field.

Duration:  Half-day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:   About 5 miles

Grade:  Moderate/leisurely

Departure time:  11:00 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631) using car share.
Refreshments will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk. (See ‘our cafe’.)  Please stay and socialise!

Walk Leaders:  Margaret Thomas & Pete Kay
