A really nice walk from the village of Penmachno walking around Moel Pen-Y-Bryn mountain. A fairly easy walk as only one steep uphill section, and only just over 7 miles long. The walk starts in the village and has varied terrains from tracks, forest paths, open fields, farm tracks and a bit of lane. It can be a bit boggy in sections so take the right gear. It has great views of the valley, rivers and hills. Unfortunately we chose a very wet day for it, but the weather in this area can be varied, so be prepared!

Llyn Padarn Llanberis

A walk around Llyn Padarn (Padarn Lake) in Llanberis Snowdonia. A nice easy walk at just under 6 miles. Start from the car park heading to the lake, you cross the footbridge at the Snowdon end of the lake then follow the trail signs around the lake. The first section comprises tracks, woodland paths and lanes, these take you uphill away from the lake but still afford great views. You then descend on lanes to the far end of the lake. The return leg on the town side of the lake is clearly marked trails with a couple of sections of pavement.
