To the peak (tourist trail from Llanberis): First 3/4 mile steep tarmac road. Mile 2 and 3 varied from an easy to moderate climb. Mile 4 was quite a steep ascent. Clear route to top, mostly uneven stoney or gravel trail. I completed it on a Saturday. The trail was quite busy and there was quite a queue at the peak to get a picture at the stone. Enjoyable walk. Didn't find it as challenging as Scafell Pike. Well within the abilities of all ages, just the initial section and the mile to the summit that require the real effort. For seasoned walkers / climbers, probably be worth attempting the more difficult routes.

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 ⛰️

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

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.

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!

Easy.

Fantastic walk with the most amazing scenery. Very busy on a bank holiday weekend, however still well worth it.

We went up Snowdon for the first time on 1st April and couldn't have asked for better weather - sunshine and clear skies! Trail easy to find from the car park (£8 for the day if you go before 2pm) and starts off on a pretty steep tarmaced road before you reach a gate which starts you on the rocky path. Constant breath-taking views and easy to follow pathways. We stopped a good few times for snacks and taking in the landscape! Great route for first explore of the mountain.

Took this route to the summit last weekend. Amazing views from the 1/2 way point. Harder in places due to the incline but a nice walk. Made it up and down in 5hrs 45mins with a nice lunch break stop on the decline. If you fancy trying Snowdon then this route is a good starting point :)

We started at Llanberis. Walked up with 6year old and 1,5 year old. Got only up to Caffe, 6 year old would not make it. Very nice views, definitely worth it, even if you go only half way there. Will come back without kids sometime or might take train up.

The easiest route up the mountain. Takes a bit longer but easy to navigate. Little cafe at halfway during peak months.
