Summary: The Cambrian Way is a true mountaineers long distance walk which includes all the mountain ranges and the highest mountains in Wales. As the official guide states the Cambrian Way is "A high level walk traversing the highest and wildest parts of Wales". The route follows public rights of way or areas where there is a right of access. It is a Coast to Coast route starting in Cardiff on the south coast of Wales and finishing in Conwy on the north coast of Wales. The distance is 287 miles and with around 22,000 metres of climbing it is twice that of the Pennine Way. The route is generally unwaymarked so navigation skills are essential for anyone undertaking the walk.
