Cefn Llechen Trail Run

A steady trail run from near Conwy. You can easily extend the run to nearer 10km by heading to Cefn Amor, past the old quarries and return along the really good green track on the opposite side of the hill. This is a pleasant trail run along grassy paths that, other than the uphill bits, …

Yr Aran From Rhyd Ddu

There’s always something special when you manage to fit a decent walk in on a weekeday. It’s almost like stolen time as we aren’t meant to do fun things on a weekday. It’s all work, work, work. So you have to work around that, and make the most of things. Well, I live so close to the hills …

Mynydd Mawr from Rhyd Ddu

This is a nice, quiet walk. So close to Snowdon, you can almost hear the crowds. Indeed, you can’t fail to miss them in Rhyd Ddu where they tend to gather to climb the highest peak in Wales and England. Fortunately for us, they don’t know any better and will leave today’s destination well alone. …

If you want to drag some non walking family members out for an afternoon, this is the walk to do it. Half way around there’s a cafe (even sells bottles of beer), so there’s …

A Stroll in the Parc

Getting to this walk is probably the hardest part! The Llyn Sarnau car park can either be reached by the minor road that passes the Ty Hyll off the A5, or a minor road that starts from near Gwydir Castle on the B5106. The latter is the better road. Once here, make sure to be …
