|Snowdonia is a great place for fell walking, not dissimilar to the Lake District. I first visited the Snowdonia national park in the summer of 2002 for a five day stay accompanied by my brother Dave and good friend Steve. Naturally our major goal was an ascent of Mount Snowdon itself but as we wanted to do it in good weather it turned out to be the final day before we actually made it onto the mountain. Snowdonia can be a wet place and only on our first and last days did it stay dry. What the unreliable weather did do for us was make us search out walks that highlighted the varied aspects of park and so you will find on these pages high level walks on super mountains in the Tryfan, Rhyd-Ddu and Snowdon ones plus a couple of interesting low level ones around Beddgelert and Llanrwst. All five walks were enjoyable and all in a variety of locations to suit the daily weather conditions. When it was wet we kept relatively low and when it was dry we tried to climb high. The result is a good variety of walks and I do hope you enjoy reading about them.|
|Tryfan||Llyn Bochlwyd, a small lake and Tryfan, a great hill make for a great walk with lots of great views.|
|Beddgelert||If its a wet day this low level walk to Beddgelert, Pass Of Aberglaslyn and Llyn Dinas is a nice alternative.|
|Y Garn and Nantlle Ridge||A stiff climb of Y Garn to start with, then part of the Nantlle ridge before taking it easy visiting some old mine workings.|
|Llanrwst and Betws-Y-Coed||Riverside and forest walking from Llanrwst to Betws-Y-Coed with a nice tarn to visit on the return leg.|
|Mount Snowdon from Pen-y-Pass||Quite simply a classic mountain walk. This one goes up the Miners Path and down to Llanberis.|
|Mount Snowdon from Rhyd Ddu||This route up Snowdon avoids all the crowds walking from Pen-y-pass or Llanberis. Penned by Adam Gallimore its a beauty.|
