Lovely view on good weather.

Fantastic hike, agree with prior comments that locating the trail in poor visibility is tough.

very short but good for an evening after work to see the tree and the local deer

Great day out with family, even grandson did well , good maps well clear of tracks , will do it again even me been sixty

Nice easy walk. Some nice valley scenery along the way to the falls.

absolutely amazing walk.

excellent views of our fantastic countryside and the sunsets are spectacular. If you're into overnight camping you'll get to see some amazing night skies here too. Well worth trying it out for yourselves.

So so so so so stunning. Views are amazing, but the climbing scramble up and along the ridge are not for the faint. Wouldn’t try the ridge section on a gusty or rainy day unless you’re an experienced climber.

Very pretty and great English Heritage visit of the Castle, plenty of birds to observe if you have binoculars as well

We had a great morning hike of over 3 hrs going up making the round on top and coning back. Lovely to take a swim afterwards in the lake.
Good views and scenery well marked path easy to follow

I am a beginner mountain biker so was a challenge in some areas ! Overall left with some heavy legs, tired arms and a big smile! Loved every minute of it!

I walked the Hawswater loop not this full trail approx 13 miles it did take a while. The reservoir was very low and you could see the village remains. The walk itself was part road which was easy going but lots of traffic. The none road side of the reservoir was quite rough terrain and climbs of around 600 feet narrow paths and challenging in places.

beautiful views and a lovely hike

Amazing hike. Start at Pen-Y-Pass and follow the path on the right up the Pyg track. At the fork bear left (unless you want to go up Crib Goch- not for the feint-hearted!). The surface is uneven, and a good pair of walking boots is a must. The last zig-zag up to the summit is by far the hardest. Coming back, you follow the Pyg track until it veers downwards towards the visible miners track below. Although the Miners route is the easiest, it is also a long track that seems to never end. My advise is, push yourself and go all the way back via the Pyg track. It may be more difficult, but at least it keeps you engaged! Nonetheless, a wonderful walk. Highly recommended.

Family friendly. Kids enjoyed it.

A definite must do if your near it!! Amazing views!

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.

Hard gong in places but the view from the top is more than worth the effort

Beautiful walk, great for kids but children under 3 may struggle as you won't be able to take a pram through the trail and it's a long walk.

Great fun scrambling, we did the miners track back and enjoyed a pasty at the top.

fun and challenging walk especially if you start from right side from car park. Last push for summit is especially challenging I advise good shoes path is rough.

Steep up and down, but great view of the lake all throughout.

Very good walk and very simple, perfect for family’s

I’ve climbed Tryfan’s North Ridge several times and it’s one of my favourite routes anywhere. It’s a scramble up a mountain rather than a walk and compared to other AllTrails walks I’ve done graded as ‘moderate’ it’s well at the top of that description. The rapid ascent will give you a workout and the views are fantastic on a clear day. Route finding- although you’re heading for the summit so, in principle, just keep going up, there are many ways to the top and you need to watch out for parts that are quite exposed or gullies that end in unclimbable rock walls. I usually go for maximum scrambling and there are plenty of challenges that for me are on the verge of needing a rope. In inclement weather the rock can be much more slippery.

my first hike for nearly over 10years, had an amazing day the view wernt the best because of low clouds but what a climb, very rocky at the start but the path gets easier as you go, just keep thinking your nearly there and you'll do it, that's my motto and I conquered it of to snowdan next week then the big Ben Nevis after then hitting irish peaks, I can say the pike got me attached.

I really enjoyed this and did it within 3 hours. Head for Australia lake (as it's shaped) and follow the path up. It gets quite loose near the top. Reach the style on the wall but don't go over it. Instead turn left and follow the wall, always stay this side of the wall. Where the path hits the final ascent it is not terribly clear but just look for where the rocks are discoloured slightly from other users and follow them. You will need to scramble/climb this last section but I wouldn't call it dangerous. Say hello to Adam and Eve at the top!
