This is an excellent introduction to hill walking in Snowdonia and only minutes away from Conwy town. Apart from the extensive views of Snowdonia and the Conwy estuary ther is added interest of a geological and archeological nature. The rock formations are both impressive and quite rare (rhyolite and rhyolitic ashes not being common)
Stunning views and on bright evenings you can see the lights of Southport, Blackpool and the Isle of Man. Even as far as the Lake District. The best start is on the Sychnant Pass road.
We climbed the mountain (not really a mountain as under 1000 ft) and then looped round and back to Conwy but there are lots of possible walks - the tracks are good and clear and the views superb
I parked at the top of the Sychnant Pass and walked up tracks until I had a view to the west shore of Llandudno. The heather and gorse were in flower, the wild ponies were bathing in the lake, the birds were singing ... all I could hear were the sounds of nature, bliss!!! I sat and enjoyed the views.
This is one of my favourite walks. I normally start at the top of Sychnant Pass then walk up to the top of the Mountain before descending into Conwy itself. A beautiful walk, as you look to the south Snowdonia national park looms, to the north you get a great view of the Great Orme, Llandudno and Deganwy and to... 更多

Simply stunning views. Not too busy that you feel crowded. I guess it helped that the weather was stunning the day we went. Only down side is there were no wild horses about the day we went.
Having driven up to Conwy we wanted a short walk so we headed up the Sychnant Pass and parked at the top. We then headed off and walked along the Conwy Mountain ridge which has amazing coastal views across across to the Great Orme. On the way down there are good views across Conwy.
Lovely walks in the area with footpaths for almost every ability varying from a gentle stroll to a challenging hands and knees scramble up the northern side. Cracking views of the Conwy bay and Anglesey areas from the top. Easy access for walkers too with a frequent bus service to Conwy and Dwygyfylchi to start walks from. Nice for an... 更多
