New hill path opens to walkers in Snowdonia

Walking enthusiasts may be tempted to don backpacks and head for north Wales with the news that a new hill path has opened.

Snowdonia National Park has unveiled the conduit, which weaves its way from Brithdir Village to Foel Caerynwch, Snowdonia, providing a backdrop of a natural amphitheatre of mountains.

The first walkers to set foot on the path were a group of schoolchildren from Ysgol Gynradd Brithdir in Dolgellau, who traversed it on March 25th and the new route could add to the six million visitor days spent in the national park each year.

"Our gratitude goes to the landowners who have co-operated so willingly in giving this permission," said Rhys Gwynn, Snowdonia National Park warden, who accompanied the inaugural expedition.

Alma Jones from nearby Cae'r Tyddyn made a celebratory cake for the occasion and the two-mile Foel Caerynwch path is the latest in a series of circular walks in the area, including one around the shores of Llyn Gwernan and another in the Clywedog gorge.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801334679-ADNFCR
