The World at your Feet
This walk takes a leisurely route from Trefriw in the Conwy valley through the lush forested Crafnant valley towards the lake bearing the same name. From here the walk takes on a whole different feel as we ascend the col at the head of the valley and over the watershed into the upper Llugwy valley. Forests give way to moorland and there’s a real chance of seeing a range of birds of prey here as well as discovering the various spring flowers in bloom. The feeling of being in the wild mountainous terrain is achieved but without the exertion of climbing any of the higher mountains. The rough, upland path is paved in places but is easily navigated. We descend to the Siabod Cafe in Capel Curig for a very welcome cuppa and piece of cake!
Duration: All day. Please bring a packed lunch.
