North Wales Path

The North Wales Path is a long distance trail which stretches close to the Welsh coast for around 60 miles from Bangor in Gwynedd, one of the smallest cities in Briatin, eastwards to the seaside resort of Prestatyn in Denbighshire. Distinctive waymarkers mark the route.

The North Wales Path was an initiative of the Community Councils and is now maintained by the Countryside Services of the Unitary Authorities, Gwynedd, Conwy and Denbighshire and the Snowdonia National Park Authority, with the support of the Countryside Council for Wales. The path can be walked in its entirety or as a number of short walks. The route links with the Offa's Dyke Path National Trail and the Dysarth Way at Prestatyn.

Little Orme

The route passes by a number of popular seaside resorts including Llanfairfechan, Penmaenmawr , Llandudno, known as the Queen of Welsh resorts and the village of Rhos on Sea. The path offers stunning mountain and coastal views, taking in the spectacular headlands of Great and Little Orme and parts of the Menai Strait with views over to the Isle of Anglessey.

A brochure (ISBN 1-84047-000-3) is available, which contains a set of 8 maps covering the route of the path, junctions with other paths, some places of interest, facilities such as toilets and car parks, and telephone numbers for further information. It can be purchased from bookshops and Tourist Information Centres. Alternatively, it can be obtained from Conwy County Borough Council Countryside Service
