Great trail, not as difficult as I thought it would be. Completed in around 5-6 hours. Parking opposite YHA, £5 all day.

Beautiful landscape, not the easiest track but worthy. Windy and cold at the top.

Great walk. Definitely quieter than other routes. It was certainly steep on Rhyd Ddu on the way up but nothing that someone moderately fit couldn't handle. The climb to the summit is a bit narrow, we got stuck behind a slow group. The wind was pretty biting towards the top. On the way down be careful not to follow the Ranger path all the way, look out for the ladder over the fence to the left and before the gate which is the way down the Ranger path. We went the wrong way because GPS didn't update on the app and we added an extra 2 miles to our walk to get back to the car park.

Amazing views but really hard wouldn’t recommend taking young children but I would most definitely do it again.

A superb way up Snowdon, great views, very quiet compared to the Llanberis side of the hill, no problem with parking and a great pub in Rhyd-Ddu One small thing though, please don’t call it Mount Snowdon, it’s never that but always just Snowdon
