Parys Mountain is a beautiful place full of different colours. It's a lovely walk and I'd definitely recommend visiting.

Parys Mountains is very much a man-made made landscape, but well on its way to returning to nature. Amazing colours of rocks and well marked trail from the car park to the tower (a disused windmill) on the top of the hill. The paths are...More
