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.
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.
Hooray! Walks can restart on Monday 09 November!
Same rules as before - please follow our Facebook page
### NEWS: From February 2021 we will publish a two month rolling programme. ###
Our Committee has agreed guidelines for walkers and leaders:
We will leave it up our walk leaders to publish "pop up" walks on Eryri Facebook 3 to 4 days beforehand to maximise the chance of good weather.
We will limit numbers to 15 (or less if the walk is tough): please text or Facebook message (do not phone) the walk leader for permission to come, anyone turning up without booking maybe disappointed.
Hopefully we should end the year with some great walks on fine days.
1. As the number of Saturdays is limited, we allow one "C" or "D" walk plus one "A" or "B" walk.
2. Members who are off-line should team up with an on-line "buddy".
3. Check your 1st aid kit, bring a mask, hand sanitiser and gloves in case you need to assist someone at close quarters.
4. Keep 2 metres apart, avoid touching gates etc. if possible, don't share food, drink, equipment or cars (unless a family group)
5. Ramblers Insurance covers us if published on Eryri Ramblers Facebook, our website or Twitter @EryriRamblers
6. Leaflet "Ramblers Restart: Taking part in COVID-safe walks (Eryri), list of Eryri walk leaders contact numbers plus Ordnance Survey map login info attached - please keep confidential.
Keep safe, follow the guidelines and simply enjoy getting out again.

Dogs – The North Wales Ramblers Area Council have ruled:
North Wales is predominantly a livestock farming area and many of our leaders will not allow dogs on their walks apart from registered assistance dogs. Those with such assistance dogs should phone the leader to discuss stiles or other obstacles on the route.
Saturday 21 November 2020 Canolfan Fron
It’s the time of year when the great and good win awards.
Rachel has been our star walk leader this year, her Famous Short Walks have probably attracted more ramblers than any other leader in North Wales.
This has given our Ramblers and friends the healthy benefits of enjoying the great outdoors in wonderful scenery - and perhaps boosted the profits of Canolfan Fron!
There are Emmy’s, BAFTA’s and Oscars – well we in Eryri have WALTERS!
RACHEL PLAXTON was appointed Eryri WALK LEADER of the YEAR 2020
Rachel’s response on Facebook:
I am overwhelmed at being awarded Walks Leader of the year! The beautiful cup has pride of place on my dining room dresser. I look at it in surprised delight! Thank you all for coming on my walks & for all the wonderful comments made.
Thank you, Roy, for your generous eulogy... You all kept it totally secret, so I had no idea why you wanted to make a speech at the start of Saturday’s walk, & was lost for words. I was amazed you all turned out for the walk on such a dismal day! Thank you for your wholehearted support& appreciation. It is wonderfully affirming.
My next Short Walks will be Friday, December 4th, 10.30am; Saturday 19th; Saturday January2nd; Saturday 16th; And Friday 29th January 2021 a WWF Big Winter Wander, sponsored walk to raise money to preserve biodiversity, so our walks continue to be full of super wild life for all to enjoy. I will enrol 25 that day, hoping to raise £250, which the government will double if the total raised nation-wide reaches 2 million!
