North Wales Path

60 miles (96 km)

Explore hills, valleys, mountains and the beautiful coast on this stunning walk through North Wales. The walk starts at Bangor (Gwynedd) in the west and heads to Prestatyn (Denbighshire) in the east.
The first section runs between the seaside towns of Bangor and Conwy passing through the Carneddau mountain range in the Snowdonia National Park on the way. You will also pass the 120 ft Aber Falls in the foothills of the Carneddau range before coming to Conwy Mountain. The mountain overlooks the sea of Conwy Bay and is topped by Neolithic hut circles and the hillfort of Castell Caer Seion.
The next section runs along the coast from Conwy to Colwyn Bay via Llandudno. There are fabulous views of Conwy Sands, Ormes Bay and Penrhyn Bay as you follow this beautiful section of coastline.
Also of interest is Llandudno Pier in the seaside resort of Llandudno. At 2,295 ft the pier is the longest in Wales. Near the town you will also pass the wonderful limestone headlands of Great Orme and Little Orme. There's more splendid views and lots of sea birds to look out for here.
The final section runs from Colwyn Bay to Prestatyn. There are more lovely, long coastal sections as you pass Abergele before arriving at the popular seaside town of Rhyl. You then head inland to Dyserth before finishing at Prestatyn.
The walk is waymarked with a green and black disc.
