Route Outline

Moel Hebog is a name that is likely to be known only to the Welsh mountains connoisseur, although within that context, it is one of the more familiar names. I have seen this walk described in walking books suggesting four to five hours to complete it. While it is always a subjective matter as to how long a walk should take, my own view is that one should allow around six hours or more. The walk features three summits over 2,000 feet along a ridge, the route itself being of a circular nature, starting and finishing at the Welsh village of Beddgelert. Navigation should be straightforward in good visibility.
