The Cambrian Way is a long distance footpath in Wales (or Cambria) running from Cardiff to Conwy. It was created by walker Tony Drake over many years of effort.


The route runs for 275 miles (443 km).

The route[edit]

The route is not waymarked and requires advanced map reading and navigational experience. The route is wholly within Wales, unlike the Offa's Dyke Path which follows the Wales-England border. The walker must carry a tent and provisions at several points on this walk unless off-route diversions for lodging and supplies are made.

It traverses Wales from the north coast to its south coast and is purposely routed over the highest upland and mountainous terrain including Cadair Idris, Snowdon, the Cambrian Mountains and the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park. It is billed as a 'mountain connoisseur's walk'.
