5 Family Walks For The Easter HolidaysPublished on 13 Mar 2015 by Gwion Llwyd
Walking in Snowdonia is a must when visiting, but not all of us are up for the full mountain experience, especially with children in tow. So we have put together 5 family walks for the Easter holidays that offer beautiful views along with a mix of terrain suitable for all ages and abilities…..
The Panorama Walk:
This Barmouth classic that boasts 3 different walks; short (1.7Km), medium (7.1Km) and long (10.2Km). The views are totally breath taking when you look down the Mawddach Estuary from the gardens. You might want to take a picnic to sit and eat here as there is a bench for the adults and great stones that look like chairs for the kids!
The Precipice Walk
A 3 mile walk through the Nannau estate offers great views down the Mawddach Estuary and the principal mountain ranges of Snowdonia; there is not much climbing or descending involved and it is an ideal walk for the whole family.
Craig y Fron, Y Bala Walk
This 3 mile walk will show you the gentler, greener aspect of the area. A fairly easy walk, it offers interesting views of Bala town, an old quarry and mountain ranges beyond. It is suitable for all ages and seasons.
Rhaeadr Cynfal Falls Walk
The 3 mile walk around the dramatic waterfall of Rhaeadr Cynfal is hidden away in the wooded valley of the Afon Cynfal river along with a gorge set within the Ceunant Cynfal National Nature Reserve. There are fantastic views of the mountains and the sea along with lovely woodland areas along the route.
Lôn Gwyrfai Walk
This 4.5 mile walk takes you from Rhyd Ddu to Beddgelert. The path leads through a variety of landscapes offering fantastic views of the surrounding area including Beddgelert Forest.
