The riverside Cobs
Most of our walks are on the Trefriw side of the river Conwy, but here’s a chance to also walk on the other side!
The river Conwy has flood defence cobs on both sides of it, which make for beautiful (and fairly flat!) riverside walking. From Trefriw we’ll walk on the southern riverside Cob round to Gower’s suspension bridge, then follow the riverside path into Llanrwst at Pont Fawr, Llanrwst’s famous old bridge. From here we’ll head back out of town using the back lanes, then descending to Tan Lan (this middle 2 miles is the only bit of ascent and descent).
We’ll now be on the other side of the river Conwy, and we’ll follow the 2-mile length of the northern riverside cob to Maenan, from where our minibus will bring us back to Trefriw.
In all, there’ll be plenty of easy, scenic riverside walking, and more often than not there’s plenty of birdlife to be seen on and near the river too.
Duration: All day. Please bring a packed lunch.
Distance: 7 miles / 11 km
Grade: Mostly easy, leisurely (though with a lane ascent in the middle from 10m up to 100m)
Walk Leaders: Karen Martindale & Jan Blaskiewicz
