Stunning views of forest waterfalls, sweeping landscapes and a mountain lake. Especially pretty in the fall. Bring change for parking as the tea shop may close.

Hiked this route at the end of August with my 10-yr old son. Trail was steady in climb but not too difficult. 2hr 45min up and 2hr 15min down again. Only met a handful of other walkers, while many other popular routes in Snowdonia where very busy. Would highly recommend as an alternative to hiking Snowdon. Great views on-route and at Summits.

Des paysages grandioses avec un beau lac glaciaire autour duquel on tourne. On est pas seul sur le chemin mais les marcheurs britanniques sont toujours aussi discrets et amicaux. Ayant choisi de tourner dans le sens des aiguilles d'une montre, la descente est effectivement longue et sollicite fortement les articulations.
