This takes the main Maenan-Conwy route in reverse. Leave Conwy on the Gyffin road. Just after the railway bridge the road bends to the right. Take the footpath to the left and walk up into the Benarth woods. When the footpaths divide, keep bearing left until you reach the metalled road by Cymryd farm. Turn left then take the footpath to the right through the caravan park to Baclaw.
You now have half a mile on the old Llanrwst road - busy, but there is a grass verge. Turn left at the Groes Hotel and follow a side road to cross the Conwy at Tal-y-cafn. Walk across the main road and follow the minor road up hill. Take the second turning to the left and walk past Llyn Syberi. About a mile after the lake, turn right and right again then take the footpath to your right to walk through the Tan-yr-allt woods to the viewing point at Cadair Ifan Goch and down to Maenan.People and Places
