HikingGreat!

Trail was easy to find from car park at the train station, path starts to get steep straight away and is boggy in parts. Went on a sunny day took 4.5 hours up and down amazing views of Anglesey, North Wales coast and Barmouth in the distance. I would advise going early I arrived just after 7am. Hope this helps. 2020 the cafe at the summit is closed.

HikingGreat!Muddy

Did this with my wife and dog, started about 8am and got back by midday, so about four hours all in. The path basically gets worse and steeper as you go on, so the start is easy and a good path and by the end it is steep and very loose. I would say it is moderate/hard depending on your fitness. The steepness in parts requires some strength but the ridge is fine, the path along the ridge is mostly a metre wide or more and the drops are not crazy either side. Did it on a Thursday and at 10.30am there were people in a line waiting for summit photos. Rhyd Ddu is a quiet route and has amazing views. The pub near the foot of Snowdon is good for a pint after too.

Absolutely amazing trail - however, did not finish it... I've attempted it with 60mph winds and in almost zero visibility above 600m (I'll add a photo of my fox red lab on the ridge). I got to 850m and turned back. Be very careful if weather forecast says it's windy. However, I will definitely return.

Hiked this on a sunny Saturday morning in August 2020. We got to the car park just before 8am to beat the crowds and completed the out and back trail in exactly 4 hours. Highly recommend this route, as it’s not as popular and not as crowded. The ridge can be a little dizzying, but the views are spectacular. The peak was quite busy, with a line of people waiting to take pictures.

Superb trail with amazing views across the lakes and great to see such a variety of wildlife. Treacherous knife edge hidden by the clouds between the two peaks but what a feeling
