Pen Y Helgi Du & Ffynnon Llugwy Reservoir walk

Gwern Gof Isaf, Betws-y-Coed, United Kingdom


A walk (approx. 4 hrs) up the water board road towards Pen Y Helgi Du (The head of the black hound) near the Ffynnon Llugwy reservoir.

Parking is available at the Gwern Gof Isaf campsite for a couple of pounds for the day. Pay at the farmhouse. From the car park turn right along the A5 (be careful walking along the road, the pavement is narrow and vehicles are moving very fast) until you reach the very long straight road leading up to the reservoir on your left. The path onto the ridges is to the right of the reservoir. It is a pleasant walk just to the reservoir or you can continue onto the  Craned Llewelyn to  the left or onto  Pen Y Helgi Du to the right (check on  your map). There are well walked paths leading down form Pen y Helgi Du back to  the A5. Remember always go prepared. the weather changes very quickly on the mountains. Contact Snowdonia National Park for more information about walking in the area.(click website).
