ON APRIL 26, 19 members set off for Conway in North Wales. It was bright and sunny but cold.

Starting from a car park on the Sychnant Pass we picked up the north Wales path heading south west across the hills.

Elevenses were taken by a lovely stream, watched over by some wild ponies.

From here we picked up the Jubilee Path around Foel Lus.

The Jubilee Path was opened in 1888 to commemorate the 1887 Jubilee of Queen Victoria.

The circular walk around Foel Lus was created for the many visitors staying at Penmaenmawr (the politician William Gladstone among them) to enjoy panoramic views over the sea and surrounding countryside.

At 800 feet above sea level, the path offers superb views of Penmaenmawr, Anglesey, Puffin Island, The Great Orme, Capelulo and the Sychnant Pass.

From here we dropped down into Capelulo (by the Fairy Glen pub) and then began the gradual ascent of Conway Mountain.

There were fabulous views in all directions.

When we reached the top of the ridge we were rewarded with views down into Conway, the marina and the castle.

We then dropped down off the mountain and circled our way through fields back to the cars.

We had walked a distance of around 10.5 miles and climbed about 1250 ft in total, a very rewarding day.
