Event Description

I did this walk during the Conwy local locokdown so attendance was limited. Now everyone can have the chance. Warning: bluebells may be involved if we are lucky/unlucky depending your opinion of flowers.

Meet 9.30am in the long parking place near the middle of Trefriw (SH 7818 6301). Turn off left in the centre of the village (if you are coming from the north), opposite the Woolen Mill. Parking on right hand side of the road after the “coaches only” parking space.

Walk about 17km or 10 miles and apparently about 1000m of ascent, even though these are not the biggest hills in Snowdonia.

Up Creigiau Gleision past Lledwigan, along the ridge to Crimpiau, hopefully find the route down through the quarry, then over the bwlch to Llyn Geirionydd. Along the lake shore then back to Trefriw along the path on the eastern side of the valley.
