Nant y Coed Walk

Over the weekend, we drove through Llanfairfechan and out to the Nant y Coed Local Nature Reserve for a little walk. It was sunny when we left the house, but by the time we started our walk the clouds were coming in and settling on the tops of the hills nearby.

The walk starts along a stream and then shoots up the side of the hill. There’s a big change in elevation, but the switchbacks make it a comfortable climb — I was surprised to look out and see how high up we had gone. You can look out across the sea to the edge of Anglesey, or across to the horses on the neighboring pastures, before circling around to the stream at the bottom of the hill again. It was a quick, fun walk, and I’m sure we’ll be back to explore some of the other trails in the area.
