Parys Mountain / Copper mine trail-
Here you'll experience the array of colours along with being astounded at the enormity of a man made crater. The largest Open Cast Copper Mine in the World during the 18th century.
It was crazy to think that this whole area was made from people with small tools.
We parked in the free car park, which leads you direct to the trail, there is information boards at the start, also numbers which you can scan on your phone to get information on each section.
There is an array of paths you can explore, including a trig point and tower to go in and read the information boards, which is all free.
The main path is solid and level but if you go off trail then watch for the steep drop edges.
All in all this was an amazing walk.
