There are numerous short lowland walks in the village and surroundings. Many of these are in the guidebooks that are available to take out from Plas Coch.
Llyn Padarn Circular is a popular walk of around 8K from Plas Coch taking you through the water meadows and ascending gently through beautiful Coed Dinorwig ancient oak woods and the quiet hamlet of Fachwen before returning on the flat. The views are magnificent!
Dolbadarn Castle ancient monument is always open for an explore and sits in a commanding position above the two lakes Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris. This is a fairly short walk which can easily be combined with other routes.
Ceunant Mawr means ‘big waterfall’ and after heavy rain is well worth the walk along a dramatic gorge to experience the breathtaking power of tons of water cascading down from the mountains- this is (surprisingly) close to the centre of the village!
Coed Doctor is a mixed wood close to the village centre. With accessible paths, a tranquil pond and resident owls (who often perch in full view in their nest box) the woods are very special in the evening or (even better) on an early morning dawn-chorus stroll.
Coed Mawr and Glyn Rhonwy offer tranquil strolls around the quiet side of Llanberis and out to open heathland overlooking the lake with views to Angelsey. Care is needed near the large old quarry holes which are gradually being taken over by nature.
