Super woods above Colwyn Bay with glimpses of views over the sea. Variety of trees and some wildlife. Really good for a round walk which is not too taxing. Afterwards, go up to the hill top,turn left and immediately right and take the 2nd on the left up to the top corner where there is a path up to Dog Mountain with benches for picnics, views of Snowdonia and a nice round walk.

Pwllycrochan Woods separates the town from the housing estate at the top of the hill behind the town centre. It is within walking distance of the other Colwyn Bay attractions of the beach, Eirias Park, the town centre, the zoo, and the Pen Y Bryn pub, though you have to be pretty fit to do them all on foot in a day. The hillside is very steep, and although there is a lower path alongside the road it is probably not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. New orientation boards have recently been installed and you can often hear woodpeckers. I've seen large birds of prey (buzzard) and foxes too. I often walk through these woods to go to town and back and the paths can be very muddy and slippy after rain. Although it only takes 15-20 mins to walk through you could spend a couple of hours max wandering around all the paths on both sides of the road.

This is a lovely little Woods, which our children really enjoyed. There are signs with different coloured arrows for different trails and a little stream which runs though the woods. We collected leave and acorns, and did some bark rubbings. We made a collage from the leaves we collected when we got home.

Pwllycrochan woods separate Colwyn Bay from Upper Colwyn Bay as you climb from Colwyn Bay towards the Welsh Mountain Zoo. It is pleasant to stroll on the footpaths in the dense predominantly deciduous woodland.

These pretty woods are on a hillside and have several paths. You can do a variety of circular walks combining steep and/or flat paths to suit most levels of fitness.
The woods are not huge but we have been enjoying them for years.

When the children were young we would play hide and seek and hunt for bears, fairies and trolls (I know there are no bears and trolls but they didn't know that! And we all know that fairies do actually live in the woods).

Nowadays we walk the dog there. It is dog friendly and most people clean up after their furry pooh factories. There is a small pond which attracts an occasional trio of ducks and the odd water loving hound.
Benches are dotted around the woods so you can catch your breath if you've chosen an uphill path. Bins are provided at the entrances to the woods so there is no excuse!
Lovely walks throughout the changing seasons....I never appreciated that fungus could look so dramatic and pretty before I found Pwyllycrochan Woods.

Took young children, one which had a bike. Not recommended for bikes unless confident rider as lots of mud and small rocks on some parts of path. Lovely walk along the stream. Children really enjoyed it. We came out by a childrens park so even more enjoyable for them

Strolling through these wood was a real pleasure as they are beautiful and old. i took a walk around one morning and was hipnotised at its beauty and couldnt quite beleve the size of them infact i got lost a couple of times but that only added to the enjoyment. So listenning to the bird song and seeing people walk their dogs was just magicel and best of all its completley free!

I live near these woods and pass them most days. They are a popular woodland walk. Worth a visit.
Nice trails and wildlife. Great to have all this so near to a built up area.

Nice walk with the dog and a change from the beach. On the side of the hill so it does involve some climbs (although zig zags so not steep) but lovely woodland and great views.

Out for a stroll with a good friend. Catching up, chatting, nature. I ask you does it get any better?

These paths and walks are maintained and will take you all over the woods.

Stunning.
