Description: This is an easy to follow trail that loops around the Western half of Capel Curig area. It takes in the Afon (River) Llugwy, Coed (Forest) Bryn-engan & Llyn (Lake) Llynnau Mymbyr with its classic view of the Snowdon Massif. On its return leg through open countryside there are fine views of many of Snowdonia’s mountains including Moel Siabod & the major Carneddau Peaks.
The route includes a stiff initial climb that uses the Moel Siabod Fell race track before descending to Plas y Brenin Mountain centre & circling first North & then East around Capel Curig. The ground is undulating with a mixture of good forest tracks, short tarmac sections, rocky paths & boggy ground (can be avoided but best not to for those wanting a true trail experience).
Other Routes – There are too many to list here but many of The Siabod Walks make excellent Trail/Fell Runs & of course variants are a plenty, so if you are looking for options just call in & ask for Paul & he’ll try to find a route that suits you.
