The route mostly follows coastal footpaths and is way-marked with its own logo. A brochure, containing a set of 8 maps, has been produced (on a scale of 1:25000) to indicate the route and places of interest. It also shows facilities such as toilets and car parks.
The path can easily be broken up into smaller, accessible sections, and many of these are well used. Popular sections include the Prestatyn-Dyserth Way, a former railway trackbed, the Great Orme and Little Orme at Llandudno, Mynydd y Dref (Conwy Mountain) between Conwy and Sychnant Pass, and Aber Falls.
Much of the route offers good views of the coast and the sea.
