Llyn Brenig Reservoir walked in the opposite direction to normal, we finished at the dam wall instead of starting that way. A great walk at just under 10 miles, very easy going on good tracks and paths. Stunning countryside views and views across the reservoir. We do this often but posting it again as previous posts were recorded on MyTracks with KML file, this time done with a Garmin so GPX file available.

A really nice walk at just over 7 miles. Starting in Betws Y Coed, then walking up though the forest on a fairly steep section, before leveling out. Greats views of Moel Siabod and Snowdonia, at times great 360 panorama vistas. The walk then carries on alongside and in forests before reaching a fascinating old lead mine with chimney still intact. The mine is roughly half way. From there heading back to Betws Y Coed on forest tracks and trails, eventually arriving at the river which you walk along back to the town.

Posted before, but now with an accurate GPX file from a Garmin Etrex30. This is a really nice walk just under 7 miles, great views of the Reservoir, moor land, forests, grass land. Nothing too hard, mainly flat on well defined tracks, one ‘hill’ – good keep fit training walk.
