Tips

  • Emily Kate

    Stunning slow gradual climb out of Bethesda and into the glorious Snowdonia countryside. Jam packed with incredible view of lakes and mountains.

    Great mountain road from Bethesda in the north up the Nant Ffrancon valley to Llyn Ogwen below Pen yr Ole Wen to the north and Tryfan to the south.
    This is the A5 the surfacee is good so it's a good climb or descent but cars do drive quite quickly so be careful.
