No dogs

Covid-19

Do not walk if you are feeling unwell. Carry your own hand sanitiser. In case of an emergency ensure you have with you a face mask and first aid pack.
Inevitably, the route will go through gates and over stiles that other people will have touched. It may have narrow sections that mean you will be passing close to other people.

Our walk starts from the West Shore at Llandudno ascending a good path to the summit of the Great Orme with panoramic views on a clear day of Snowdonia, Anglesey and the coast.

We descend from the Great Orme through Happy Valley to the Llandudno Bay promenade to take us to the Little Orme. After ascending the Little Orme on the North Wales coastal path, we can take a small detour to hopefully see the grey seals in Porth Dyniewaid bay and look down towards Rhos on Sea and Colwyn Bay.

After descending the Little Orme, we cross the main road and follow paths through the woods and fields behind Llandudno before crossing the railway & back to our start point.
