With rolling hills, mountains, rivers and lakes, Snowdonia National Park is home to miles of trails that take you through a diversity of splendid scenery. There are six trails that climb to the top of the mighty Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, and the distinctive Penygader. The Llanberis Trail is the longest of the six trails and follows the mountain railway track offering fantastic views, whilst the Rhyd Ddu Way is the quietest of the six routes and the Llanfihangel and Pennant Trail is the easiest of the six but one of the longest. From steep gradients and rocky paths, all are so-called “hard/ strenuous” routes, but have the most rewarding views that are worth the effort.Gwynedd for indoor lovers
