Warning!
The Miner’s Bridge was washed away during storms in February 2020. It should be easy enough to divert around by following the path or minor road on the north side of the river, or the main road into ByC on the south side.

Remember that we cannot outline every single hazard on a walk – it’s up to you to be safe and competent. Read up on Mountain Safety , Navigation and what equipment you’ll need.

Sarn Helen Walk from Capel Curig Details

Starting off in Capel Curig before following disused byways over to Dolwyddelan and possibly a pint (was shut today). Then along the Afon Lledr before starting to climb again by following the Sarn Helen Roman road past the settlement of Rhiwddolion and Betws Y Coed. The final section is again following a river, the Llugwy, along a narrow path high above the river and past the Swallow Falls. A final section of forestry walking brings you uphill again with magnificent views towards Siabod and Yr Wyddfa to finish the day off.
