Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays

On Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays from 29 May to 25 September, you can reach a wide area of North Wales by using the Clwydian Ranger leisure bus network of services. The ever-popular Loggerheads Country Park, an excellent destination in its own right, continues to be the focal point of a number of services from surrounding towns, interconnecting to offer onward travel to a variety of places within the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Two more scenic services link Rhyl and Prestatyn with Llangollen, Bala and Barmouth calling at Llyn Brenig and Betws y Coed giving access to the Snowdon Sherpa network. The Coastrider links Wrexham and Mold with the seaside resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn allowing a full day at the beach. It passes through Bodfari which is one of several access points to the Offa's Dyke Path on the Clwydian Ranger network. All this and more is available to Clwydian Day Ranger Ticket holders on Sundays with Adult tickets cost just £3.50 with reductions for children and those over 60 whilst Cerdyn Cymru Passholders travel free. Showing your Clwydian Day Ranger Ticket at one of several venues (see page 23) will help you save even more!

Snowdonia

The Purple Line route to Betws y Coed opens up a whole host of possible trips for walkers and sightseers alike. Betws y Coed itself has plenty to see - ask at the Tourist Information Centre for leaflets of local walks which lead alongside fast flowing rivers, past waterfalls and up into the surrounding forests. By using connecting Sherpa Bus Services, however, you can travel even deeper into the beautiful Snowdonia Mountain Range. Service S6 will take you to Llyn Ogwen. This is great base for the adventurous walker. For the less energetic, the walk to the Devil's Kitchen will provide a taste of the high mountain scenery with less of the effort.
