Photo from the walk - Moel Siabod circuit from  Plas y Brenin, Capel Curig

Nat Park - Snowdonia - Moelwyns Moel Siabod Cnicht

County/Area - Conwy

Author - Paul Gasson

Length - 6.5 miles / 10.6 km

Ascent - 2700 feet / 818 metres

Grade - moderate

Moel Siabod is one of those mountains so often ignored, being less than the magic 914mtrs or 3000ft, and, from the roads nearby, of fairly featureless appearance, but, believe me, it is a Snowdonia walk for the connoisseur of mountain walking. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).
