Getting to Snowdonia - walking routes

Hi there!

I've never posted on TripAdvisor, but here goes.

I'm planning on going to Llandudno from April 21st-22nd. I was hoping to use Llandudno as a base to go on walking trails in Snowdonia National Park. Is there a transportation system that goes from Llandudno to any of the walking trails in Snowdonia?

You will need to look at the bus website and work it out. I would say its not all that easy to get to Snowdon itself, but you can get to places where you can walk. There is a train (and bus) from Llandudno to Betws y Coed where I think you can get a bus to Snowdon itself or walk directly up into the woods. The same train or bus takes you to on to Dolwyddellan, and Roman Bridge, from both of which you can walk in the valley and up on to the mountains. You will need a 1:25,000 map. If you go on to Blaenau Ffestiniog, you can walk down the valley south and get a bus back up. Its also posible to walk up on to the Moelwyns to the west from Blaenau, A good walk is get the bus to Blaenau, get a taxi back on yourself to the top of the Crimea Pass (or maybe the bus will stop at the top?), and then walk down the Lledr valley on the wild footpath to the west of the road, to pick up the bus or train home at any point when you flag - all down hill. You could have three or four good days off the Conway Valley train and bus route, but you wont have seen the more massive and rugged Snowdon area itself.

Hi Amanda and welcome to the forums .

If I were you I would base yourself in Betws y Coed ,2 days using Llandudno as a base is just not long enough for all that traveling to get to Snowdonia.
