|The Cambrian Way is an unwaymarked, coast to coast path which travels 275 miles through Wales from Cardiff in the south to Conwy in the north. It is a spectacular route travelling through the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons, over Cadar Idris and through Snowdonia. The total ascent over the whole length of the path is 61,540 feet 64% of which is over 800 feet and 20% over 2,000 feet. It is not for the faint hearted or inexperienced walker and navigation skills are an absolute must. The walk was devised by Tony Drake and his guide "The Mountain Connoisseur's Walk" is informative and easy to follow although OS maps are, of course, also essential.
