Details: A ‘there-and-back’ ramble,(mostly on a tarmac surface) of some length, but little ‘technical’ difficulty, from the very dramatic Ogwen Bank Falls, (especially after heavy rain!) to the impressive mountain scenery in the ‘typically U- shaped’ glaciated valley of the Nant Ffrancon. A ‘jewel’ of North Wales! A very good start-of- season-Ramble and quite ‘suitable’ for beginners. (on a class 3 scooter, of course!)

NB – This ramble is also included in the ‘National Rambles Programme’ for September.

If you can’t make it then, here is another opportunity!

Distance: 8 miles. Difficulty: Cat 2. (‘Probably NOT suitable for the smaller class 1 scooters,due to in-sufficient battery power (steep hill!), (despite the low level of technicality!)

Date: Monday 2nd May 2016

Meeting at 9.30 am (please be prompt.! See below!) for a 10.00am start.

Start point:Ogwen Cottage Car Park. Post code: LL57 3LZ

A Tramper off-road scooter might be available for a new member to borrow – first come so ask now!
