Walks East of Snowdon

Walks East of Snowdon

by: Michael Burnett
Between Blaenau Ffestiniog and Betws-y-Coed lies the Lledr Valley from where the soaring mountain-tops, ancient forests and lush water meadows of this unique valley beckon. The fact that the landscape is the setting for a spectacular castle and ancient church and that it is traversed by an ancient Roman road provides an additional incentive to visit and explore.

The 20 circular walks described in this book range in locality from the north of the valley, where the Lledr and Conwy rivers converge, to the south, where the infant Lledr emerges from the mountains above Blaenau Ffestiniog. Most of the walks start from three stations on the railway line: Pont y Pant, Dolwyddelan and Roman Bridge.
Each walk chapter includes an overview description with details of how to get to the start. This is followed by detailed route finding instructions in numbered paragraphs which correspond to points on a sketch map. Some additional background information is provided.
