Help connect Llanfairfechan

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 Llanfairfechan’s Slow Ways.

Walk this route if you're keen on civil engineering, because you'll appreciate the sheer skill that went into designing the road and railway, getting it around (or through) a formidable rocky headland....

We cross the A5 with care and take the shortcut path straight on down the hill, then detour left past the school and Llandegai church. Eventually we reach the outdoor bathing pool in Llanfairfechan, which we skirt on the right, then use the shortcut to reach Station Road, At the lights we turn left to reach the meeting point outside the Methodist church (barely more than a tin shack painted bright blue....

The GPX plotting is a little vague, but essentially we keep to the roads and tracks nearest to the A55 until we see the rather impressive new cycle track which crosses half of the A55 just before the tunnel entrance, and looks down on the other half. We follow the cycle track onto a road, and where it crosses the A55 we stay left following the surfaced path along the top of the beach....

As an experienced walker, I had no problem with the path over Bangor Mountain and there should be room for SlowWays that use these kinds of paths, especially in rural areas, but it may be more slippery when wetter....

Walked from Llanfairfechan to Bangor, definitely started on a high and finished on a low with this route. The start all the way up to the spinnies was a nice adventure and a birders/wildlife enthusiasts/botanists dream, just a few bird species I saw without binoculars were; Skylarks, Swallows, Lapwings, Little Egret, Oyster catchers, Buzzard, Wren Fledglings so recommend bringing some for the the mudflats and multiple nature reserves/bird hides on this route! Then it leads to some paths which go through some pretty villages, the route from St Cross Church to Tal-y-Bont was an enjoyable segment as it’s through the fields, but walking through industrial areas were less so and a little unsettling if travelling solo....

Roughly a 5k route, relatively flat for the area as it is close in proximity to the sea. - This route is reasonably safe but wheelchair/mobility scooter users should be aware that a few difficult curbs may require a detour but do not prevent access to the route and there are slopes along the way....
