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.
Here are some images, the route to follow…
Dave also established Walk up Snowdon, Walk up Scafell Pike and Walk up Ben Nevis just to mention a few.
