Slate Trail Survey, Betws y Coed
The Slate Trail is a “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.” The trail was recently featured on an episodes of the BBC’s Countryfile.
Capel Curig to Bewts y Coed is one of 5 sections of the slate trail which are surveyed by the society ensuring that this trail is accessible and easy to follow.
Tasks on the day will include surveying and maintenance of the footpath, gates, stiles and waymarkers along the trail. This section demonstrates much of the terrain the slate trail has to offer.
