Cadair Idris
Walking Guide and Walks

Cadair Idris is a magnificent mountain with many crags. There are many approaches to its summits with the most popular being the Pony Path. However, there are better alternatives especially on the southern approach from Minffordd. Other summits in the group are much less spectacular though some are worth walking including Waun Oer and Maesglase.
