The section from Conwy through to Betws y Coed has a range of different options and we’ve been looking at the Cowlyd – Coedty – Crafnant lakes over the last month. Apart from discovering rusting tractors, we also found an older network of paths and tracks. Some of these are wilder and are going onto the Eryri Haute Route plans. There have been some long days as well, but the rewards of watching the sun setting over the hills is always memorable. Snow has helped to make the views much more enjoyable, although the wind and rain has meant frequently wet feet.
