This series of four trails starts from the Pont y Pair car park in Betws-y-Coed and leads through the surrounding Gwydir Forest.

Coed Tan Dinas Trail - ¾ mile/1.2 kilometres, easy 
Follow the boardwalk and wide path alongside the river on this short walk through Douglas fir trees which are up to 100 years old.

Cyrau Trail - 1½ miles/2.5 kilometres, strenuous
The Cyrau Trail climbs through some majestic Douglas firs to give a stunning view over Betws-y-Coed. The path returns to the village along a forest road with trees growing on either side of it.

Pen yr Allt Trail - 4½ miles/7.1 kilometres, strenuous
The Pen yr Allt Trail is a circular route through shady fir forests and upland meadows and offers breath-taking views of the ever dominant Moel Siabod and the Conwy Valley. It returns along the river Llugwy (if it has rained a lot, the river can overflow here and you should follow the diversion).

Llyn Parc Trail - 6½ miles/10.6 kilometres, strenuous
The Llyn Parc Trail sets off along an old miners' path and goes past the ruins of Aberllyn Mine. After reaching the lake, it continues along the shore before passing a small waterfall on its way back to the village.
