Walks - Snowdonia

The Snowdonia walks listed below cater for walkers of all abilities from easy low-level walks to the high mountain summits. All walks are free to download and print and all routes have GPS files. The walks reach all the major summits in the Snowdonia National Park including Snowdon the highest mountain in England & Wales. The list is divided into areas the key mountains ranges as an easy to use classification.

There are many great walks in Snowdonia. Hard mountain walks provide the majority of routes with the Snowdon Horseshoe a personal favourite. Other walks worth doing include the Nantlle Ridge, Moel Siabod and routes on the Glyders and Carneddau mountains. Easy walks are relatively few in number with the Precipice walk near Dolgellau one of the scenic gems of the National Park.
