Footpath Building: Slate Trail, Llan Ffestiniog
The Slate Trail is an “83-mile circular trail which enables walkers to explore the industrial heritage of the slate villages throughout Snowdonia. This trail visits some of the less-frequented but beautiful parts of Snowdonia, passing through all the major mountain ranges, offering a range of experiences from mountain to forest, lake to river, from the valley to the sea.” Snowdonia Slate Trail.
Last year the society embarked on a project to improve a section of this beautiful trail just outside the village of Llan Ffestiniog. The project involved pitching stone with the assistance of the National Trust Footpath team and our work was highlighted on the BBC’s Countryfile program!
Join us at the beginning of the year as we will be continuing with this section of the trail in this rugged part of Snowdonia.
Whether you’re a seasoned volunteer or have never volunteered before this day is the perfect opportunity to learn new skills, to meet like minded people and to give something back to Snowdonia. If you like getting stuck in and get your hands dirty this is the day for you!
