Penmaenmawr to Rowen – The Huw Tom Walk

There’s a pleasure in walking linear routes that no circuit can match. Walking from one settlement, over the hills to another always feels like a longer trip. This one, at only about 10km is short, but takes you from the coast and over pleasant hillside. Well, apart from the area adjacent the Afon Gyrach where you may well get your boots muddy. The walking is otherwise good, on short cropped green tracks with views in all directions.

You can return via Bwlch Y Ddeufaen if you wished.
