Slate Trail Survey
“This 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.
For these volunteer days we will be surveying and maintaining an 8km stretch between Capel Curig and Betws y coed. There are some fantastic views in the hills above the A5 with a mixture of farmland, uplands and woodlands. Along the way you’ll be able to enjoy the fantastic views of the river Llugwy through Rhaeadr Ewynnol (swallow falls). Tasks will include the survey and maintenance of the footpath, gates, stiles and waymarkers. Come and join us for a taste of the Snowdonia Slate Trail.
