Walks in Hidden Conwy

Lying between the Conwy Valley and the Vale of Clwyd, and extending north from the edge of the heather moorland of Mynydd Hiraethog towards the coast, is a hidden, beautiful, unspoilt part of North Wales, generally by-passed by visitors as they head to crowded Snowdonia.


At its heart is a delightful area of rolling hills and lush part wooded Elwy and Aled river valleys. Welsh culture and language continues to play an important part in the life of its small close-knit farming communities and historic villages, with ancient churches and traditional country inns.


It is a wonderful walking area with a feeling of timelessness about it. Its small hills, now Open Access areas, offer stunning views, especially of the mountains of Snowdonia as you move further west.


This book of 25 circular walks explore the area’s enclosed upland pasture, moorland fringes, hills, river valleys, woods, and small upland lakes. There are walks along the eastern edge of the Conwy Valley, including Bodnant Garden, two classic viewpoints, and around Llanrwst and Capel Garmon. Other walks explore the undulating countryside further east, from ancient communities, including Llansannan, Llangernyw, Llanfair T.H. and Llannefydd. Some walks include sections of the waymarked North Wales Pilgrim’s Way from Holywell to Bardsey Island.
