We start from the GROES INN and head S.W. on the lane and then west up paths which ascend through woods and moor to the ancient church of St Celynin.
We continue and then head S and SW to join the Roman Road. We soon leave this and head north to the summit of Tal-y-Fan.
We descend generally N across moors to join the North Wales Path which soon contours on a narrow path above Fairy Glen. We cross the Sychnant Pass Road and continue on the North Wales Path to Conwy.
On a good day we should get magnificent views. If the visibility is very poor I shall abandon this walk and go around/over Conway Mountain, Penmaer Bach  and Altwen.

One Response to Conwy

    Despite the weather turning drizzly later in the afternoon, the B party, led by Graham Bevan, had a lovely walk in Conway, with some magnificent views. As expected some of the footpaths were flooded and an alternative route had to be found, but Graham, being the skilled map reader he is, steered us safely back to Conway, where we enjoyed refreshments and a look around the interesting little shops. Thank you Graham for a good day out. Doreen
