Wild Horses

The minibus will take us to the coast at Conwy, from where we will walk up over Conwy Mountain to Sychnant Pass, initially with great coastal views. We will then head inland on to Pen-y-Gaer, an Iron Age fort overlooking the Conwy Valley, passing through an area of ancient standing stones and burial chambers. The walk should reward us with splendid views throughout, and in this part of the Carneddau it is common to see wild ponies, though we can’t promise it!

The minibus will return us to Trefriw, in time for our now-legendary Cake Fest at 4 p.m.!

Duration:  A full day. Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink.

Distance:  about 10 miles / 16 km

Grade: Moderate.  (There are couple of steeper sections, mainly going up Conwy mountain and up out of the Sychnant pass).  Much of the walk is somewhat elevated; remember that it can be cold in the foothills, even in May. Please ensure that you have warm, waterproof clothing and good boots.

Meet: 8:00 a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
Tea and cake will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk.

Walk Leaders: Karen Martindale and Graham Martindale
