A Walk from Llanberis 2016

Walk Leader: Garth Raybould
Total Distance: 10 miles
Total Ascent: 3,100ft

Distance: 17 km (10 miles)
Ascent: 950 m (3,100 ft)

This walk follows one of the lesser known ridges of western Snowdonia, by means of a mostly anticlockwise circuit to the south of Llanberis.  The route takes in Moel Eilio, Foel Goch and Moel Cynghorion, finishing with part of the Snowdon Ranger Path to Bwlch Maesgwm and a gentle descent back to Llanberis.  (Should weather or other factors require, the walk can be shortened to about 8 miles with 900 ft less climbing.)  Given good weather there should be fine views of the Snowdon massif to the west, with Llyn Cwellyn and the Nantlle ridge to the south.
