It's an amazing walk. Walked with 6 and 11 years old kids this week end. I must say that it wasn't easy and a steep section required quite a bit of hard work. But as soon as you get to the summit it all goes away. The views are sooo beautiful. You did not visit Snowdonia until you walked Snowdon. Its a must ⛰️

first time around, perfectly clear on solstices day. Super fun scrabbling:)

just literally finished this trail, was walking at night for the CWC care workers charity, Started at 23:45 and finished 6hrs 49minutes later. it is the first time I have climbed such a big mountain, I found myself struggling at times but reaching the summit made it all worth while, definitely recommend this walk, I will be trying some other routes in the future

Reasonable scramble but long walk-in with bog at end before ridge.

There's no way this is a hard climb. Only in the last 30m or so is there any scrambling.

Definitely not a walk; it's a climb even before you reach the ridge itself there are several short walls to surmount. Absolutely tremendous scramble along knife edge and over pinnacles. Sheer drops on either side particularly north.

Very rocky and steep trail. Got it done in 4 hours. The summit was only 1085 meters. Not that much to my 4500 meter mountains back home in the Rocky Mountains though. Good view but cloudy.

Pyg Track up and Miners down. Views will range from nothing to breathtaking depending on weather. And the earlier, the better - avoid the crowds especially at Penypass Car Park (gets full quickly) and the summit (will have to queue when train start running) A great route to Snowdon.

Tough, but very rewarding!!!

The best views of Snowdonia are from just after the Knife edge / Ridge. If it's dry and not too windy and you take your time, it's not as bad as people make out!! If it's wet and windy, take the Pyg track instead!

Christmas morning 2018 searching for Santa

First time up Snowdon with my son so proud of him

This is a lovely easy walk, my daughters enjoy it at 4 and 6 years. They do the easier loop, without going to the higher point at the back. That does make the walk slightly more tricky!Although we didn't exactly follow the path. I love the views.

Crib Goch was scary .... I was told people exaggerate it but it depends on a variety of factors and although I’m glad I did it there was a part that was terrifying. Consider it carefully would be my advice

incredible trail great views not for the faint hearted

Did this loop with my 9 year old son. Highly recommended Cadair Idris for that sense of utter adventure, full of myths and legends. However it must not be underestimated. The path down on this loop can be difficult and unstable with lots of loose rocks and sticks are recommended. Or go on your bottom. Don’t take a child that hasn’t done a fairly steep climb before, we saw one family with a fairly distressed child. But we also saw others skipping past us. The map on this app actually cuts out the Mynydd Moel summit, and skirts round the middle. That’s fine, it’s pretty easy to figure out the route when looking from the Penygadair summit, if you did want to bag that extra peak. Prepare for humidity in the Celtic Rainforest. As you descend and get close, you can feel the heat coming off it. Truly spectacular.

i would recommend this trail if you have good physical condition with strong knees as on its half way, lots of climbing off trail to meet up pyg trail people. I rated as this track with the most stunning view while going up to Summit. i picked up Llanberries going down, the view was less exciting than Miners track. Strongly recommend to going up by this track.

I did this trail a few years back but started with the North ridge scramble of Tryfan then ascended bristly ridge before walking the remainder of the glyders. If you like scrambling this is great fun.

I did this with Mind Charity walking through the night and arriving at the summit for sunrise and it was an incredible experience! Tricky in parts especially when you get to the ascent on slate! The start is quite steep concrete - persevere and the views after will make up for it!

we climbed on the 17/5/19 up the miners track the fog came down on us at the top lake it's easy to get disorientated at this point you want to take the steps opposite the middle of the lake, don't go to the end of the path and attempt the scree scramble like we did....... it was a really hard climb, at the top of this path you meet the pyg track and then climb steep steps and rocks to the next junction with the llanberis path then it's a short climb to the summit, the fog had lifted by the time we hit the summit and we were treated to the amazing views. we then descended via the pyg track back to pen y pass. it took us 4 hours up and 2.5 hours down. well worth the climb.
