The mountain offers visitors to Conwy an opportunity to enjoy an idyllic walk that combines history with stunning natural landscapes.
Conwy Mountain is a hilly area that sits just west of the town, overlooking the bay of Conwy. It remains a part of an ancient volcano that erupted over 450 millions years ago. The mountain itself is an easily accessible, multi-route mountain that provides walkers of all abilities with the opportunity to enjoy a range of walking types.
The summit of Conwy Mountain homes a Neolithic Hut Circle and an Iron Age hill fort, giving the area some real character, and plentiful opportunities to take interesting photos. Historians estimate that there would have been around 60 huts, levelled platform houses with a citadel and outposts in the extensive, ancient settlement.
Tracks and footpaths that go across Conwy Mountain can be accessed from Sychnant Pass at its western end. Conwy Mountain is also a section of the North Wales coastal path, which if you desired a great challenge and decided to follow, would lead further on East or West, reaching Prestatyn and Bangor respectively.
Famed for its colourful landscape, “humps and bumps” and plethora of photo taking opportunities, Conwy mountain is a widely enjoyed and recognised walk that can be enjoyed for both short and long walks.
Whether you need to fuel up before you eat, or fancy an after walk refuel with some lovely food in a comfortable, historic setting, Conwy town itself is only located a short distance away, meaning you can easily access the town and its amenities if you have made appropriate plans.
