Walking in Llŷn and the Snowdonia National Park
Snowdon itself, at 3,560 feet (1,085m), is obviously the prime destination for many with the most popular routes to the summit being the Llanberis Path, which runs parallel to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the more strenuous Pyg and Miner’s tracks.
However, there are a number of other mountain ranges that are equally as beautiful and challenging such as Y Carneddau, Y Glyderau, Y Rhinogau and Cader Idris. The scenic North Wales Path which follows the coast and lower mountain slopes between Prestatyn and Bangor offers fascinating sights such as Aber Falls and the Druid’s Circle whilst the traffic free cyclepath from Barmouth to Penmaenpool provides stunning views of the glorious Mawddach estuary.
NEW Coastal Circular Walks
To make the most of the coastal walking offer, 18 circular walks have been developed by Gwynedd Council through funding received by the Big Lottery Coastal Communities Fund.
The circular walks give you the opportunity to enjoy the Coast Path, but also to appreciate nature, heritage, culture and adventure opportunities available in the nearby villages and towns.
Details of the walks are available here
