Being at the top of a valley, Bryn y Maen offers several beautiful and scenic walks through some of the best countryside in Wales. The Nant y Glyn Valley Walk is a 6 mile circular trail that takes in copses, fields, and parts of the Nant y Groes stream as it meanders its way through the valley and the village of Bryn y Maen before descending by narrow country lanes to Eirias Park close to the beach at Colwyn Bay.
Encounter carpets of bluebells, ancient oak trees, and the enchanting Blackberry Mountain as you appreciate the beauty of this secret valley.
Christ Church at Bryn y Maen was built between 1879 and 1899 at the expense of Mrs Eleanor Frost in memory of her late husband Charles Frost. There is a broad nave, vestry and organ chamber. The top of the tower is crenellated and the bell openings have straight heads.
An RSPCA rescue centre can also be found in the village.
