Our kids aged 7 and 9 enjoyed this walk up the mountain with us, starting from Conway YHA and finishing with lunch in Conwy town. The whole walk took us 2 hours and thrilling views from the top and along the ridge meant the children felt like it was a real adventure, especially with the strong wind at the very top and the wild ponies grazing at close quarters on the ridge.

went up conwy mountain which is really more like a very big hill. you go up a small path which starts with a bit of a steep walk but it soon levels off. the views are amazing. one side are lively inland views and on the other coastal views. I'm not a mountain climber and think if i can go up there anyone can.it is worth a try you will love it.

Conway mountain is one of the most beautiful mountains for walking.The mountain walk takes 3hrs,distance 6 miles (9.5km).
The walk starts in front of Conway Castle.The height of this mountain is 809ft/247m.The views from this mountain are magnificent with its panoramic views inland and over the coast and estuary.
The maps required for this walk are:
ORDANANCE SURVEY MAPS- Llandranger 115(Snowdon)
- Explorer OL17(Snowdon-Conwy)

Once you climb over the ladder-stile and enter the Conway Mountain Reserve,the beginning of this walk is fairly steep,however it levels out for you to enjoy a pleasant and comfortable walk.There are views West to Anglesey,South down the Conway valley and East to Clwydian mountains,on a clear day you may see gas rigs and wind turbines far offshore the North-East in Liverpool Bay.The best time to visit Conway mountain is August-October where you can view the beautiful colours of the heathers on the mountain.There is a rockface wall on the mountain were you can practice rockclimbing skills.
There is a wide stony path that runs along the ridge top through the remains of the Castell Caer Seion hill fort.The views around the mountain are breathtaking even before you reach the summit.Once you reach the summit enjoy the panoramic views.
(keep your eyes out for the summit as its to the right of the path.)
From the summit,follow path and head towards "PENSYCHNANT",Gwarchodfa nature and farm reserve.From nature reserve,follow the path which will take you back to Conway town.

Easy-moderate- walk.

There are pubs,restaurants and cafe"s at Conway including public toilets.The "Liverpool Arms" pub is a nice pub to visit after a days walking for a drink,its located on the Conway harbour.
