About Us

Welcome

Crib Gogh

Welcome to ERYRI Ramblers / Croeso i Cerddwyr ERYRI


Our group activities:   *   Walking and Scrambling    *   Social Events   *    Footpath Maintenance   *


We are a welcoming, friendly group.  If you a newcomer to walking or a regular walker interested in trying something new, contact us or simply join us for one of our walks.  Come and try us out for two or three walks and see how things go.  


We have great walks, ranging from short, easy strolls, amazing cliff walks along the stunning Llyn coastline to superb ridge walks and scrambles in Snowdonia. 

Also we have a popular range of social events:  a long weekend, annual dinner plus a quiz night (see below).  

Joining the Ramblers, Britain’s major organisation for walkers, will seem the natural, healthy thing to do! 


Putting something back, we have a team of enthusiastic volunteers Tim Taclo working in liaison with Gwynedd Council to improve footpaths. 

Their efforts are appreciated by local communities and fellow walkers.    


For current information, see our active Facebook group  (which is open to all), also a lively, informative Twitter account 


We have strong links and share walks with all Ramblers Groups in North Wales, particularly:
Ynys Mon, Conwy Valley, Vale of Clwyd, Clwydian, Meirionnydd and Llyn Ramblers.      See the Ramblers website for all North Wales Walks.

MUSHROOM FORAY

and visit to Yr Ardd Fadarch (the Mushroom Garden)

 Thursday 10 October - 10.30 start

This is a 4 hour tour, walking from Beddgelert Tourist Info Centre down to the farm foraging along the way, and then a tour and tasting at the Farm itself. The more people we get on the tours, the less it will cost as they charge £100 per tour i.e. £10 for 10 people

Please let me know via email asap which day you would prefer


BONFIRE PARTY on Thursday 31 October at 

CWM, TREFOR, LL54 5NB 5pm start

An auspicious night in the future of the UK but just come and have mulled wine, soup and jacket potato and commiserate/celebrate (no arguments!) You can do a head torch walk from Trefor village up to the house on the lane or car share to the house. No fireworks as we are surrounded by animals.


WICKER BASKET MAKING TASTER course

Basket-weaver Jo Porter will give us a morning taster session during which we can either make a bird feeder (£30) or small basket (£50).

She will either come to us locally somewhere or we can go to Felin Uchaf near Aberdaron, but we will need to make a contribution to that venue.

Again, please let me know via email if you are interested.


MOUNTAIN ADVENTURE FILMS

Another film season of incredible feats coming up in our local cinemas in November. I will post the times in the next Newsletter and perhaps we can organise a get-together at The Galeri one evening. 


Look forward to seeing you … Di Jamal
