CAERHUN - HENRYD - CAERHUN ........... Distance 8.5miles / 13.7km ............. Climb: 750 feet

A lovely short ride with fantastic views of the Conwy valley, river and estury. It starts at one of the top birdwatching spots in the area (one of the few places to see Hawfinches in Wales) and also the site of huge Roman settlement. The route also passes the famous Dutch Pancake House which is a must for any visitor to North Wales. Warning!! There is one very steep hill.

Start: Caerhyn Church Car Park, easy parking everyday except Sundays.

Leave the car park and follow the lane back down to the main road.

0.28m At the T junction turn right.

0.44m Turn right signposted Rowen.

(someone forgot to put the memory card in their camera [me] so I'm afraid the only photo from the trip was taken on a very steamed up mobile phone)
