BSC2023: Conwy Mountain & Coast Walk (Sun 10:30)
30 people attending
0 places left
20 people waitlisted
This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023.
Stunning views for not too much effort, perfect for blowing the cobwebs away! Starting in the picturesque town of Conwy with its imposing 13th century castle, this circular walk follows the quayside before heading up a single short steep climb up Conwy Mountain where (weather permitting) we'll be treated to spectacular panoramic views. We'll then come off the mountain to loop back and walk along the beach to follow the beautiful coast back into Conwy.

What to bring
Good walking boots, waterproof jacket and plenty of layers as the walk is along exposed coast.
Hand sanitiser and a face covering: whilst we are living with Covid-19, please bring your own to events to help keep everyone safe
Water: bring at least two litres
Medicines: if you have hay fever, diabetes, minor ailments etc.
Day rucksack: typically 20-30 litres, they are comfortable to wear and allow you to use your arms freely
Boots: waterproof and breathable and designed for hiking, trainers are OK if the ground is dry and there’s little chance of rain
Gaiters: recommended for wet weather or boggy conditions
Socks: proper walking socks will keep your feet dry and help prevent blisters
Layered clothing: lets you quickly adapt to changes in the weather and body temperature. Go for a base layer (vest or t-shirt) and a mid layer (a micro fleece or shirt) and in cooler weather add an outer layer (a windproof jacket or thick fleece)
Trousers: ideally no jeans as they become heavy and cold in the rain, breathable fabrics are more comfortable and dry and on warm days shorts are OK
Waterproof jacket: essential when hiking in all but the calmest of weather, breathable fabrics are more comfortable and dry
Gloves: Windproof, or better still, waterproof gloves are the best choice, bring a spare pair if expecting rain
Hat or cap: stay warm in winter and shaded in summer
