This trail visits some of the less-frequented but beautiful parts of Snowdonia, passing through all the major mountain ranges, offering a range of experiences from mountain to forest, lake to river, from the valley to the sea. All along the trail are fascinating things to be seen and experienced. From small sleepy villages to the honeypots of Llanberis and Betws y Coed, this trail provides a wealth of variety.
This trail is also a joy for narrow gauge railway enthusiasts, as it visits the Penrhyn Quarry Railway, Llanberis Lake Railway, Snowdon Mountain Railway, the Welsh Highland Light Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway.
A Trail for all. Do a 7-day hike or just have a day out walking a section
An incredible combination of landscape and history, with physical and mental challenge thrown in too! Loved it
