We know that our guests love to explore the local area whilst they have a relaxing break with us here at the Elm Tree. Here are some local walks which are fairly easy and can be completed in an afternoon.
There are a series of walks of varying lengths and difficulties around the Great Orme headland which happens to be on the doorstep of the Elm Tree. The two Great Orme Historical Trails can be combined together to make a longer walk which affords spectacular views of the Liverpool Bay, Carneddau Mountain Range, the Menai Strait and Anglesey.
- Great Orme Nature Trail; this is a circular walk around the headland. The trail is clearly marked with specific logo discs to aid walkers. The long route covers around 4 miles, whilst the shorter route covers 3.5 miles.
- Great Orme Summit Trail; three scenic walks from the town of Llandudno to the Great Orme summit with wonderful views of the town and beyond. The trails are clearly way marked with the Summit Trail logo disc. Choose between Haulfre Gardens Trail – 1 mile, Happy Valley Trail – 1.5 miles or the Zig Zag Trail – 1 mile.
This is the smaller of the two headlands who call Llandudno Bay their home. There are relatively flat paths to walk on, dogs must be kept under control or on a lead as sheep and goats graze freely on the headland. The walk is approximately 3.2 miles in length, but does include some steep areas.
The Conwy RSPB nature reserve is a wetland on the east bank of the Conwy estuary, created from material dug out during construction of the A55 road tunnel. It is now home to a variety of different wildlife, and it is a great place to experience nature.
Conwy Mountain is a stone’s throw away from the walled town of Conwy. Despite the walk being relatively short and lowly, the paths are rough and walks feel like a proper hill. The route is approximately 3 miles long, and provides you with excellent views of the Carneddau Mountain Range.
Tucked away near Rhos-on-Sea is Bryn Euryn, this nature reserve is popular with local dog walkers and is good for a quick short walk. With wonderful panoramic views and the remains of a 15th century house, Llys Euryn is definitely worth a visit. There are a variety of different paths through and around the woodland and to the top of the Bryn. The perimeter walk is around 1.2 miles in length and is fairly gentle.
