Year 3 trip to Bryn Euryn

  • September 15

Bryn Euryn is a prominent limestone hill overlooking Rhos on Sea, with fine panoramic views of Colwyn Bay, Llandudno, Snowdonia National Park and Rhos on Sea. It is a rich mixture of grassland and woodland, part of it being a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

It also has great historical interest with Llys Euryn – a house dating from the 15th century – and a hilltop fort from the 6th century. Bryn Euryn is well served by a network of paths, including two-way-marked trails – the Summit Trail, which links Llys Euryn and the fort at the summit and the gentle Woodland Trail.
