Llyn Parc Waymarked Walk from Betws-y-Coed Details

Llyn Parc is a scenic lake in the middle of the Gwydr Forest, and easily walked to from Betws-y-coed. This route is way-marked all the way around with Yellow markers, and despite being 10km, does not shy away from losing altitude on the way!

More information, and a printable map (though you can barely make out details on the map, is useful used in conjunction with a proper OS Map) can be downloaded from the Natural Resource Wales site – Pont y Pair and Pont y Pair Trails Information Sheet.

Full Route to follow, but you can easily follow this route using the way-marked trail pamphlet and a proper map as mentioned blow. Just follow the yellow arrows.
