Mountain Walks in Snowdonia
The National Park of Snowdonia has something to offer everyone; but one thing it has plenty of, is thespectacular walks through the hills and mountains that make up this beautiful National Park.
As well as Mount Snowdon, there are plenty of other, smaller mountains and hills that take you through meandering hillsides and glacial landscapes sculpted by the last Ice Age.
If you're looking for a walk that is a little off the beaten track and not as popular as Snowdon, then the walk up Moel Hebog from Beddgelert is the perfect walk for you.
This is a circular route with varying terrain, so make sure you are wearing the correct footwear! On a clear day you can see the outline of the Welsh coastline and across to Snowdon. If lucky, you may get to see some of the amazing bird life that inhabits this area, from Buzzards and Red Kites to the occasional Perigrine Falcon!
This walk is approximately 7.5 miles with an ascent of 905m. This walk will take you around 5 and a half hours, so make sure you go well prepared. Always check the weather before you set off as this will determine whether you go or stay at home. Always plan your route before you leave as this will save you time whilst you are out walking. Make sure you are aware of the area where you start from.
Or why not try the walk to Y Garn
Y Garn sits at the northern end of Snowdonia's proper mountain range The Glyders. This walk takes you to the shores of Llyn Idwal which sits in the glacial platform of Cwm Idwal, then up to Y Garn. This walk really does give you a tour as you also take in the Devil's Kitchen path on your way back to your starting point.
This walk to Y Garn is approximately 4.5 miles and covers an ascent of 655m. This walk will take you around 4 and a half hours to complete. Again, always check the weather forecast before you set off, as well as planning your route, and always make sure you are wearing the correct clothing! And more importantly, always make sure you let someone know where you are going!
