Hiking Challenge – from seashore to lakeshore

Another route from GC who hiked a varied route of paths, lanes and open country to complete the statue-to-statue challenge with a brief detour to the summit of Moel y Ci.


“This was a lovely route that took me out of Bangor on hidden trails, along silent lanes and then across some lovely wild country. If you use my route please note the detour to Moel y Ci adds a lot of distance and takes you across open mountainside with not much in the way of paths and landmarks – a direct route on the paths from the slopes of Moel y Ci to Dinorwig is an easier alternative! Whichever variation of the route you take, it’s a wonderful area to explore between the sea and the mountains, culminating in the descent through Parc Padarn on delightful woodland paths”.
