North Wales Castles Trail

349 km / 217 miles

Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Wrexham
A route from Chirk to Caernarfon taking in the castles, or castle sites, of Chirk, Castell Dinas Bran, Caergwrle, Hawarden, Ewloe, Flint, Mold, Ruthin, Denbigh, Bodelwyddan, Rhuddlan, Gwrych, Conwy, Abergwyngregyn, Penrhyn, Beaumaris, Dolbadarn, Dolwyddelan, Castell Tomen y Mur, Harlech, Criccieth and Caernarfon.

Beaumaris Castle is reached by way of a spur off the main route at Llandygai (Penrhyn Castle).

From Llanberis the road is used to reach Pen-y-Pass but this can be avoided by catching a bus or by taking an alternative route over Snowdon using the Llanberis Path and Miners' Track.
