Across the Rhinogydd – Rhinog Fawr and Llyn Du.

Anyone who’s heard of these will know how wild and rugged they are. If you haven’t, then you need to realise that they’re a range of hills that stretch from the Vale of Ffestiniog in the north, to the Mawddach in the south without being breached once by a road. There are two rough and […]

Nantlle Ridge Circuit From Rhyd Ddu

This is undoubtedly one of the classic routes in Snowdonia. While many will do this with two cars, or even the ‘double’, the more elegant and pleasing option is to return via Cwm Pennant. This route descends via Cwm Dwyfor, but it is also possible to descend Cwm Braich y Dinas or Cwm Cipwrth, though […]

The Carneddau from Ogwen to Aber

This is one of the best walks in the area. If you want to get a feel for these spacious hills, then this walk provides all that. Of course, you could start from the North, or even from Bethesda or the remote Eastern cwms, and all of them excellent choices. The main advantage of this one, […]

Carneddau – Aber to Trefriw

This is a different approach to these hills, one that does leave you with difficulty in returning to your start point, but buses do pass through Trefriw. It’s also a route that contrasts along it’s way. You start in a wooded valley, cross moorland and secluded valleys, before crossing the highest land over Llewelyn. To top […]

Southern Rhinogydd from Nantcol

 Having explored the north of these rugged hills, I couldn’t keep away from collecting the full set. Compared to the northern Rhinogydd, these are much easier underfoot but can still spring a surprise or two! Getting to the start of this walk can either be by the old gas guzzler into Cwm Nantcol, or you can start […]
