Amazing Conway mountain. The start of a he walk was easy to find ask anyone. The views were amazing for very little effort. You could walk as little or far as you wanted. A lovely fresh winter walk- need to be wrapped up on a cold day but definitely worth it.

I am more used to climbing the highest Welsh peaks, but my wife finds hills more challenging, so Conwy Mountain was a good compromise. Forty minutes steady walk from the car park in Conwy brought us to the ridge overlooking the Irish Sea and as we continued to the top we had to keep stopping to take in the view.... More

Hardly a mountain but it does stretch your legs to get to the top and the view over the Conwy estuary, towards the Great Orme, Anglesey and Puffin Island - especially on a sunny day reminds me of Greece. Well worth the effort.

This is an excellent introduction to hill walking in Snowdonia and only minutes away from Conwy town. Apart from the extensive views of Snowdonia and the Conwy estuary ther is added interest of a geological and archeological nature. The rock formations are both impressive and quite rare (rhyolite and rhyolitic ashes not being common)

Stunning views and on bright evenings you can see the lights of Southport, Blackpool and the Isle of Man. Even as far as the Lake District. The best start is on the Sychnant Pass road.

We climbed the mountain (not really a mountain as under 1000 ft) and then looped round and back to Conwy but there are lots of possible walks - the tracks are good and clear and the views superb

I parked at the top of the Sychnant Pass and walked up tracks until I had a view to the west shore of Llandudno. The heather and gorse were in flower, the wild ponies were bathing in the lake, the birds were singing ... all I could hear were the sounds of nature, bliss!!! I sat and enjoyed the views.

This is one of my favourite walks. I normally start at the top of Sychnant Pass then walk up to the top of the Mountain before descending into Conwy itself. A beautiful walk, as you look to the south Snowdonia national park looms, to the north you get a great view of the Great Orme, Llandudno and Deganwy and to... More
