Woods, Lakes and More – 23

Friday 19th May, 2023

Woods, Lakes and More

This gorgeous walk takes in a variety of scenery – hillsides, lakes, woodland, forestry and open moorland – between Trefriw and Capel Curig. We’ll be passing Llyn Geirionydd on the way out and at our furthest point (see the picture above) we’ll hopefully have great views of Moel Siabod, Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) and the Snowdon Horseshoe. We’ll return on the moorland below Crimpiau, eventually descending from the col to scenic Llyn Crafnant, then back to Trefriw, never far from the river Crafnant. This is cuckoo country, so we’ll be very surprised if you don’t hear the cuckoo on several occasions during the walk.

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  11 miles / 17 km

Grade:  Moderate, but leisurely

Departure time:  09:40 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
