Llanberis Path, Snowdon

Llanberis Path is the longest and most gradual of the six main paths to the summit of Snowdon, and offers fantastic views of Cwm Brwynog, Llanberis and over the Menai straights towards Anglesey.

Distance: 9 miles - 14.5Km

(there & back)

Watkin Path, Snowdon

This path was named after Sir Edward Watkin, Liberal Member of Parliament and railway entrepreneur who retired to a chalet in Cwm Llan on the foothills of Snowdon.

Distance: 8 miles - 13Km (there & back)

Minffordd Path, Cader Idris

At about 3 miles, this is probably the shortest footpath up Cader Idris; although it involves the greatest ascent (2,850ft, 869m).

Distance: 6 miles - 10 km (there & back)

Llyn Mair

Llyn Mair and Hafod y Llyn are two lovely little lakes near Maentwrog, 2 miles from the farm in the area of Tan-y-Bwlch, Lots of wonderful walking trails near the Tan y Bwlch Ffestiniog Railway Halt
 

Rhyd Ddu Path, Snowdon

This path up Snowdon is the quietest of the six main routes to the summit, and the one that offers the most striking mountain scenery, especially towards Moel Hebog and the hills of Nantlle.

Distance: 8.5 miles - 12Km (there & back)

Miners' Track, Snowdon

The Miners’ Track was built to serve the Britannia Copper Mine on Snowdon but it is not the route originally used to serve the mine.

 

Distance: 8 miles - 13 Km

(there & back)

Snowdon Ranger Path

This path up Snowdon is thought to be the earliest of the six main routes to the summit. Before the road through Llanberis Pass was built, men lugged copper ore from the Britannia Copper Mine on Snowdon up the eastern side of the mountain to Bwlch Glas.

Distance: 8 miles - 13Km (there & back)

PYG Track, Snowdon

This is the most rugged and challenging of the six paths up Snowdon, which leads along the foothills of Crib Goch. The route up Crib Goch and along the ridge is extremely dangerous and should not be attempted by novice walkers.

Distance: 7 miles - 11 Km (there & back)

Pony Path, Tŷ Nant, Cader Idris

The Pony Path from Ty Nant is the main footpath up Cader Idris from the Dolgellau side of the mountain. It is a reasonably safe route, which

also offers the most rewarding views.

Distance: 6 miles - 10Km (there & back)
