Walks In North Wales


Gwynedd Walks

Coed Y Brenin

Coed Y Brenin forest North Wales, a nice walk at just under 7 miles on decent forest tracks. There are a lot of mountain bikes on half this route (we did not realise it was a mountain bike center!), bikes aside a really nice walk. Starting at the visitor center car park the fist of half of the walk is along Llyn Eden (River Eden) and it is beautiful, after the river a steep ascent though woods then back on forest tracks for the return leg. There are great views and a lot of bird life, we saw two jays!

Mynydd Gilan Porth Neigwl

Great walk taking in a few miles of the Welsh coastal path. Starting at Hells mouth (Porth Neigwl) and walking around the headlands before cutting back across countryside to Hells mouth (Porth Neigwl). Fairly easy walk although it does have some up and down sections, and can be boggy near the end of the countryside section. Spectacular views of cliffs and beaches and a lot of bird life.
