Walk of the Month - Llanberis Circular

This is a wonderful circular walk that will take you through the small village of Llanberis, over the Afon Goch river and towards Cwm Brwynog on the lower slopes of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon). On a clear day you can enjoy fantastic views of Yr Wyddfa, Elidir Fawr and the village and Llyn Padarn lake. Cwm Brwynog was inhabited for centuries and many mediaeval and prehistoric remains can be seen here and there. Even as recently as the last century a close knit community of around 100 people lived here. Look out for Capel Hebron chapel before you cross the railway line!« more details
