Getting to the start of the walk.  Check the bus timetable here

Car parking in Rowen free public car park LL32 8YA or nearby at 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 Penmaenmawr at the end of your walk.  The afternoon 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 to Conwy Railway Station and then by bus to Penmaenmawr Library, from the same bus stop, and then walk back to Rowen.
Also, please note that our shop in Rowen, shown on the map, is now closed.

Note 1…  The Conwy Council walk leaflet does not print clearly.   We have rewritten the walk directions.  See   huw-tom-walk-printer-friendly-directions 

Note 2…  Penmaenmawr Museum has moved from New York Cottages at the start of the walk.  It is now in the old Post Office,  on the main street in the middle of Penmaenmawr (August 2017).
