About Walking With Conwy Valley Ramblers
To see a map and grid reference for the starting point of a walk follow the walk title link to Ramblers Walkfinder or look at the 'full list of walks'
Conwy Valley have a six monthly programme printed with all the other walks in the North Wales Area and sent to members in December(Jan to June) and June (July to Dec)
All our walks (In the walk programme table) show a Grade and the number of miles the leader plans to walk. The Grades are:-
E: Leisurely, pastoral and normally a half day walk.
D: Easy, mainly pastoral.
C: Walked at a gentle to moderate pace which most people can manage, often over moorland and hills but only up to 600 m/2000ft.
B: Moderate, for the reasonably fit, usually visiting mountain tops.
A: Strenuous, mostly mountains, perhaps including scrambling; if easier terrain, it will be long.
Please bring any items you may need, taking into consideration the weather forecast and the unpredictability of mountain weather.
Good footwear is important, walking boots will keep your feet dry in wet muddy conditions and give a good grip in bad weather. Boots (rather than shoes) give support for ankles.
A good waterproof jacket is essential, as well as waterproof trousers, a hat and gloves in winter or on long mountainous walks.
Any trousers can be worn, except jeans, these will soak up water like a sponge and your walk will be uncomfortable.
A small rucksack to hold the gear you are not wearing and to hold your sandwiches and drink(perhaps a flask for a hot drink). There is usually a coffee break after about an hour into the walk and a lunch stop, usually with gorgeous scenery.
Anyone can walk with us, non-members are very welcome to join a walk and the walk is free.
After two or three walks we would ask you to join the Ramblers Association. This can be done online by clicking on one of the links on this site.
As most of our walks are through sheep country dogs are not allowed on any of our walks-sorry.
An exception can be made for guidance dogs but please contact the leader in advance for infomation such as stiles.
