Visiting Snowdonia

Warden Service


Ioan Ll. Davies

Area Warden (North)

I live near Betws y Coed and have worked as a warden for the Snowdonia National Park for eight years. Before joining the National Park full time, I worked as a seasonal warden at Cwm Idwal.

My area includes the parishes of Dolwyddelan, Penmachno, Ysbyty Ifan, Bro Machno, Capel Garmon and Ffestiniog.

There are a number of walking opportunities in my area from open country walks to the summits of Moel Siabod and the Moelwynion range to low-level circular walks such as the Bro Garmon leisure trail. The area has a number of mountain biking courses including Penmachno Forest and Marin Trail in the Gwydyr Forest. During the summer months the area is very popular with canoeists who use the Afon Conwy for recreation. The river rises on the Migneint moor and travels around twenty-seven miles to the Conwy estuary.
