NEW: Easter Mountain Rambling
Course Number: K0402
Date: 22 April to 26 April 2019
Course Leader/s: Andy Collins
A phrase we use is, ‘O fôr i fynydd’, from sea to mountain, this is apparent from everywhere you visit in the National park and we will take every opportunity to walk some of the lowest and highest areas available from our fantastic coastal paths to the beautiful Carneddau mountain range. This time of year also offers some fantastic wildlife from the Ospreys of the Glaslyn to the Bluebells of the forest floor.

Tuesday: Tall tales
As well as myths and legends, the walk has some more modern tales to tell. . . Why is tobacco named 'The Devil's Weed'?
Mist and Mosses
The walk through the woodlands to the dramatic Cynfal Falls or Rhaeadr Cynfal . The sound of the river thundering its way through the gorge is amazing but it is also a very peaceful walk with only the odd stray hoot from the Ffestiniog Railway train to interrupt the birdsong and waterfalls cascading their way down the valley.
Wednesday: Moel Siabod
Moel Siabod is one of those mountains famed for its perfect outlying position giving it excellent panoramic views to higher mountains. The views to the Snowdonia, Glyderrau and Carneddau ranges from Moel Siabod are awesome.
This walk sees us starting from the famous Joe Brown shop in Capel Currig past the famous Pinnacles climbing area and into an ancient woodland lies full of old oak and mosses. From here, we scour our way through the carved out paths to reveal one of my favourite views down to Llyn Crafnant and Colwyn Bay in the distance.
Porthmadog Harbour the town and slate industry. The Coastal path to Cricieth looking over to Harlech Castle and Rhinog mountains.
Course taught in the medium of English.
