    A good way to walk up Snowdon. Shorter but steeper than the more common Llanberis track, but also far fewer people. Depending on the wind direction can also be an easier route than Llanberis as on some days it can be more protected ascending on the other side of the moutain. A couple of places where possible to mistake the route and as with all moutains some very steep drops so care needed.

    One of the classic routes up Snowdon. Make sure you are prepared with strong shoes/boots and proper clothing as it can be very changeable up there.

    The Pyg Track is the shortest route up Snowdon and begins at the parking spot on Pen-y-pass. It is a relevantly easy route and is one of the most popular. It contours the ridge below Crib Gogh and affords you great views of the lakes in the bowl.
