Car parking in Rowen free public car park LL32 8YA or across the road from the flagpole.
Free public toilets in the car park are open mid April to end of October.

Important note… Re the advice in the Conwy Council walk leaflet, we do not recommend that you leave your car at Penmaenmawr, intending to travel by bus from Rowen back to Conwy, and then to Penmaenmawr at the end of your walk.  The bus service from Rowen to Conwy is very limited.   You could face a long wait!
We recommend that you park in Rowen, travel by No. 19 bus at 8.06am from Rowen to Conwy Railway Station (Check the bus time is still correct!) and then by bus (every 15 minutes on weekdays) to Penmaenmawr Library, from the same bus stop, and then walk back to Rowen.   In the summer, you could use the midday bus from Rowen to Conwy. Check the times.
Sunday bus service is much reduced.  Not recommended for this walk.  Use two cars instead.
Update January 2023. Our shop in Rowen has reopened, and is now a very popular cafe and shop, at Groesffordd Ro, open at weekends.
Please support the cafe and shop!
Note the useful new Co-op store in Penmaenmawr, next to New York Cottages, the start of this walk.  Ideal for picking up some lunch.
