The Conwy Valley Way

A long-distance walk of up to 102 miles, with a choice of routes, exploring both sides of the part wooded Conwy Valley, one the most beautiful areas of North Wales. From the Great Orme the trail follows the river from the mouth of the estuary down the eastern side of the valley to Betws-y-Coed and on to its source at remote Llyn Conwy, high in the Migneint moors. It then returns along the more rugged western side of the valley, passing through Gwydyr Forest Park containing various upland lakes, to eventually finish at the medieval fortified walled town of Conwy, a World Heritage Site.


The meandering, undulating trail passes through a diverse landscape of estuary, wooded river valleys, upland pasture, hills, moorland, forest, woodland, scenic upland lakes, waterfalls and dunes. It visits classic viewpoints and many places of historic interest.


The Conwy Valley Way can easily be undertaken as a series of short linear day walks linked to local public transport (details provided). The book also provides a fascinating insight into the history of the valley and the communities the trail passes through.
