Description

jubileemap

From the cottage cross the bridge and turn left (1) to pick up the Glyn path past the play area (2) to the Fairy Glen Pub (3). Engage low gear now! The lane behind the pub rises steeply to a junction (4) with a "llwybr cyhoeddus" sign - thats Welsh for public footpath! Through the gate and the track levels out (5) near another sign (6). This is where (one of) the alternative paths joins. Follow the track towards the farm. Another path breaks off right, contouring the hillside (7). This joins up with the Jubilee path (8). Alternatively follow the track then pick up the path behind the farm (pic R below).

Enjoy the main section of the Jubilee Path with its splendid views. The geology is of interest too, being a hard fractured rock called rhyolite, of volcanic origin and frequently mineralised (note the exploratory tunnel in passing). This part of the world was once more like the Andes - a high volcanic mountain range near a continental plate margin. Turn a corner to look down on Penmaenmawr (10), and on to the entrance pillars (11).

To continue the circuit follow the track to a marker stone (12). Continuing straight leads to an interesting stone circle, and also joins up with the N Wales footpath. Branch left to wend your way back to the farm and to pick up the track down to Capelulo. Alternatively heading SE will also pick up the North Wales footpath to head to the Sychnant Pass.
