What you'll do

I've planned a great mix of a full day's hiking taking in some archaeological sites along the way. We'll leave the World Heritage Conwy Castle and hike up through the gorse and heather to the top of Conwy Mountain to check out the Iron Age fortress there. It's a good stretch ascending 1,000 feet but we'll be rewarded by the views over to the Great Orme limestone peak in Llandudno and across to the island of Anglesey.
We then continue across undulating moorland crossing little streams and We'll probably see the wild mountain ponies and almost definitely the welsh mountain sheep.
We eventually reach the Druids Circle - a site that's most definitely much older than when the Druids lived, dating back to neolithic times. We then follow old droving roads descending the mountain past old granite quarry workings down to finish at the bus stop where we'll take a regular bus (leaving about every half hour) back to Conwy. This hike lasts 4 hours and ascends(and descends) over 1,000feet. You'll need good hiking footwear and clothing and water and a packed lunch..

Where you'll be

We'll be hiking on rough tracks through heather and gorse moorland at the edge of the Carneddau Plateau the largest, highest mountain massive south of the Scottish highlands. People have wandered these tracks for millennia and it's a pre-historians paradise scattered with axe-head quarries, iron age forts and older standing stones. Hikers come from all over Britain to wander these fascinating hills.
