Llwybr Llyn Elsi Trail Walk from Betws-y-coed Details

If you want an easier alternative to our Llyn Elsi Walk from Betws-y-coed, then why not follow this waymarked route from the St Mary’s Church car park in Betws-y-coed?

Simply follow the white waymarkers for this 6.5km routes, but be warned that the sign in the carpark reads 4.2km for some reason. It looks to me as if someone’s measured the length of the trail without taking into account that unless you want to remain at Llyn Elsi that you’ll need to return along the same 2.2km you walked up!

For more information – Natural Resources Wales as it may be occasionally affected by tree felling.
