Project Description

Snowdonia Slate Trail

The Snowdonia Slate Trail is an 83 mile circular trail which enables walkers to explore the industrial heritage of the slate villages throughout Snowdonia.

Although the route starts near Bangor and ends at Bethesda it passes the forest gates here at Benar Cottages. The path passes a number of social enterprises and community run facilities and provides opportunities for people to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the slate heritage in our area.

Travel time from Benar Cottages: 0 minutes – walk from the door

The slate trail is a great path to pick up right here at Benar Cottages. You don’t have to walk the whole 83 miles in one go but you might want to follow it to Fairy Glen, pick it up at Zip World or Penrhyn Castle – perhaps walk a section before having lunch in Beddgelert.
