Betws Y Coed Clogwyn

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.
