Our walks so far in 2022 have been based on those in Alex Kendall's Cicerone guides, Snowdonia North and Snowdonia South, so rather than create a separate index, I've added to the 2021 index, the result of which is here.
I've tried to make the text and links consistent, but as we know, Google's 'Blogger' facility leaves a lot to be desired, so even if you select all the text and make it one size, it seems to come out as random different font sizes.

On Tuesday (original report here) we took a short drive to Tomen y Mur - just as well it was short, as on arrival at the car park we realised a need to return immediately to Porthmadog - for a 9km circuit described in Walk 3 of Alex Kendall's 'Snowdonia South' book.
The cloud was down at our 300 metre starting point at the historical site of a Roman fort upon which the Normans built their motte etc.
There are several information boards; the one pictured above is next to the small car park and imagines the view shown below in the era of a Roman amphitheatre that occupied this spot.
Forest tracks rise above Trefriw and continue towards the Grey Mare's Tail waterfall, which is accessed via the steep descent of a 'there and back' path. It was well worth the visit.
