Walks In North Wales

Forest

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!

Newborough Forest

A lovely walk in south west Anglesey, good forest tracks with stunning sea and Snowdonia views near the end, in the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve. At just over 8 miles the walk is easy as fairly flat. Starting at the car park you follow the forest tracks going around the forest in a big horseshoe, near the end you hit the beach and head out onto a peninsula called Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Llanddwyn). Great Snowdonia vistas and a historic site – The church of St. Dwynwen (the Welsh patron saint of lovers), after this you head back to the forest for the last section of the walk.
