Walk Eryri

Walking in Snowdonia


Garn, Glyderau and Tryfan from Ogwen


There’s only one way to enjoy a walk on a Bank Holiday. Well, ok, there’s 2 if you count don’t bother, but getting up just after dawn and being on the hill for 7am is the one i’d choose. Even the car park at Ogwen was empty!

So this weekend, why not try and miss the crowds by getting out of bed before them, if not you’ll just have to put up with the crowds on the tops and the queues to get past almost any obstacle! You may even get back to Ogwen when there are still some sausage rolls left.
