Best Walks in Northern Snowdonia

In this book I have selected 30 walks, some in less well known areas, which reflect northern Snowdonia’s rich diversity of landscape, scenic value and historic interest. They range from a 1 1/2 mile waymarked National Trust woodland and upland trail to a challenging 8 mile ridge walk, one of the best in Snowdonia.


There are walks exploring the coastal foothills of the Carneddau range from above Conwy to Bethesda, including the stunning Aber Falls and a climb up Tal y Fan, Snowdonia’s most northerly mountain. There are waymarked trails through Gwydyr Forest Park past hidden upland lakes and lead-mining relics.


They visit ancient monuments including Iron Age hillforts, stone circles and standing stones, and a remote upland medieval church. They follow in the footsteps of Romans, drovers’ and miners and pass close to Snowdon Mountain and the Welsh Highland narrow gauge steam railways. There are walks by rivers, through woodland, past valley and upland lakes. They visit historic communities, including popular Betws-y-Coed, Beddgelert and Llanberis, as well as the former slate quarry village of Cwm Penmachno.
