Local Walk Llyn Elsi

Llyn Elsi (allow roughly 2 hours ) This mountain lake is hidden among the mixed fir and broadleaf woodlands of the Gwydir Forest and lies above Betws-y-Coed. Head for St Mary’s Church and take the forestry track following the black & white markers which are placed along the route. The walk climbs through the woods until you reach the lake. If you turn right at the water, you are greeted with wide ranging mountain views of Snowdonia. Walking around the lake offers the opportunity to enjoy the abundant wildlife.

River Walks

River Walks (20 minutes to 2 hours)

From the bridge follow the boardwalk along the river and through the trees until it terminates in a wooded dell. Here you can choose to return back to the bridge on a short and very pretty stroll suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs, and those unable to walk far.

Or from the end of the boardwalk, you can pick up the trail down to the river, this leads to the Miners’ Bridge where you can cross over the river and return to the village on the A5.

If you prefer a longer walk carry on past the Miners’ Bridge and follow the fence until the path joins the river again. The track climbs up through the forest to join the tarmac road. Walk along the road for a few hundred yards and take the first forest track on the left. This leads you the romantic Swallow Falls. Your return to the village can be along the A5 pavement or retrace your steps. This round trip is approximate 6 miles.
