Wild Horses – 23

Sunday 21st May, 2023

Wild Horses

We’ll be catching the no. 19 service bus (fare: £3.60, unless you have a concessionary pass) 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, partly on the Cambrian Way, 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!

At the end of the walk our minibus will collect us from above Tal y bont and bring us back to Trefriw.

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

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.

Departure time:  08:40 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
Refreshments will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk. (See ‘our cafe’.)  Please stay and socialise!

Walk Leaders:  Ken Brassil & Marianne Siddorn
