This section of the National Cycle Route 5 runs along the North Wales coast and links Rhyl, Kinmel Bay, Abergele, Colwyn Bay, Rhos on Sea, Llandudno, Conwy, Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan. The majority of the route is a traffic-free trail with a short on-road section at Conwy before returning to the traffic-free seafront route. The route then continues on-road and westwards along the coast through the seaside towns of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan.
A predominantly traffic-free spur goes to Conwy via Llandudno providing stunning views of the Conwy river and of Conwy Castle in the distance. This route also provides a link to the RSPB Reserve in Llandudno Junction.
Much of the traffic-free sections of the route are also suitable for walkers and wheelchair users. There are plenty of refreshment stops along the way as the route passes through many towns and villages.
National Route 5 extends westwards from the seaside towns of Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan, and finally to the city of Bangor.
