This is an 11km hike which will take 4 hours. The trail is steep and muddy in places.

This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023.

The scenery, wildlife and peaceful atmosphere as you walk around Llyn Elsi are really worth the Hike from Betws-y-Coed. The trail, which we will start from outside Saint Marys Church in Betws-y-Coed rises and decends steeply from Betws and follows a combination of forest roads and narrower footpaths where you can expect mud, rocks and tree roots! 

The hike will take us from Betws-y-Coed where we will walk along the road from the Church and cross a bridge to take us through the Gwdyr Forest. After a walk of 1.5km we will go down a set of steps to the Afton Llugwy river. We will then cross over the road and start the assent to Llyn Elsi. We will have lunch by the lake and take in some of the amazing views before making our way back to Betws. Where, if you choose, you can have a walk around the shops or grab a drink or Coffee.
