Fairy Glen is a protected Local Nature Reserve and ancient woodland. The wooded paths through the reserve follow the course of the River Colwyn into the heart of Old Colwyn.

Fairy Glen is a well-used and loved area for locals to get a taste of nature and enjoy some peace and quiet.

The surrounding valley and dense tree cover provides a short and sheltered walk along the river with regular rest stops to take in the countryside. The paths join up via numerous footbridges so you can create your own route through the reserve.
