Slow Ways linking Bangor and Bethesda, Llanfairfechan, Menai Bridge

Great Britain / Gwynedd / Bangor

Bangor’s three Slow Ways are 33% checked

Drawn: 3/3

Help connect Bangor

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Bangor’s Slow Ways.

View facilities

This is the obvious route to walk ... but misses the opportunity to walk off road.. I would suggest that you could 1) follow the coastal path (great view), or 2) divert into Menai woods 3) or walk up via roman camp (again views!) 4) You could even miss out the section on Holyhead road by going via Brewery Fields...
