This walks leads you along the North Coast Wales Path from Abergwyngreyn to Conwy, over Conwy mountain. While bigger hills lie just over the horizon to the south, this makes a perfect warm-up (or warm-down) for anyone exploring Snowdonia, bringing in its coastal elements alongside the hills. Good bus services link the start and finish.
