The walk is relatively easy, the only climb being up to the higher ground between the two valleys. This is offset by the wonderful views. There is a visit to Gelert's Grave, as well as walks by the Rivers Glaslyn and Colwyn. The walk could be undertaken by a reasonably fit family group.

04/07/16 Pleasant walk and not too difficult. Although it rained for us and so views were limited. One point to note at step 7, that the iron gate in question is one with a cattle grid, on the stony drive. (If you go through the first iron gate you come to and into a field you have a long way back up when you realise it was the wrong gate! Oops!)

We did this walk at the weekend with 3 dogs and thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall it was a nice stroll through the surrounding area and taking in some interesting sites. We kept the 3 dogs on the lead for the duration since there was some road walking and much of the rest of the walk took us through sheep fields but this didn't detract from the walk at all. 5 stars overall for an easy to navigate walk and 3/4 dogs since the dogs had to be kept on the lead most of the time but there weren't any awkward styles and hopefully introducing them to Gelert will have instilled some loyalty and discipline into the pesky pups.

Great little walk - we took our collie and the reason it's not a 5 is there is quite a bit of road walking. We did get a bit confused by waypoint 9, the photo isn't clear (and we were using a photocopy) so I think we ended up taking the wrong bridge (the second one), if the bridge is the first bridge then maybe it could be amended to say so - we found a nice alternate anyway - and got lots of photos of the steam engines now running on the WHR - thanks.
