Romans and countrymen
This is a glorious round in an area which we’ve not fully explored before. Our minibus will take us to Betws y coed, from where we will walk by the riverside, crossing Miners’ Bridge to then follow the old Roman route of Sarn Helen past the old village of Rhiwddolion and over the hill to Pont y Pant, in the Lledr valley. From here we’ll follow the river downstream to Victorian Gethin’s Bridge, to then take a path up the hillside to Llyn Elsi, the lake/reservoir above Betws y coed, from where we’ll return on the main track to the village. The minibus will return us to Trefriw.
Duration: All day. Please bring a packed lunch.
Distance: 8 miles / 13 km
Grade: Moderate, but with a total of 1,500 ft of ascent
Walk Leaders: Maria Denney & Marianne Siddorn
