The Miner’s Bridge Walk
The Miner’s Bridge was used by miners in order to access the lead mines in the Gwydyr Forest. The bridge crosses the Afon Llugwy which is a tributary of the River Conwy. This is a walk that is brilliant for beginners, it’s easy going and perfect if you’re looking to really take in your surroundings.


Llyn Elsi from Betws y Coed
Llyn Elsi is a reservoir found in the forest above Betws y Coed. The walk is less than an hour away and is well worth seeing, the local angling club has also made it the home to various types of fish. Be sure to take a camera as the views across the lake are breathtaking!


Swallow Falls Walk
The tourist given name for the Rhaeadr Ewynnol, this multiple waterfall system is a must-see! The walk passes through the woodland with multiple waterfalls along the way, they are best to see after wet weather which is not something we are a stranger to here in North Wales. Along this walk you can enjoy the previously mentioned Miner’s Bridge, ending up at the River Conwy where you can see a 50ft waterfall!
