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.

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.

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.

Took this route going up to the summit of Snowdon on Monday 2nd July. Views were amazing to see in all directions.

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

Good moderate hike with some tough steep climbs

Breath taking at points but you needs some balls of steel for the ridge walk

Beautiful scenery had an amazing time. Didn't do the whole trail as there was a ram at the top my dog took a disliking to but still completed a loop. The rocky cliffs remind me of the rock monsters from the never ending story.

I climbed Snowdon with school it a real good challenge but make sure you go at the right time and bring a lot of water because the higher you go the losers the stones are.

It a nice pleasant walk and most of it doesn't rate "hike" at all. I grew up 5 miles from here and used to walk or cycle up here. Best times are out of tourist season.

(June 17) Relatively easy route up Snowdon. Heavily trafficked as a lot of people park in Lanberis. Gets a bit steep about 3/4 of the way up. Take plenty of water and food as the shop at the top isn't always open.

Most of the trail is an easy grade but still beautiful. The end is steep and there are some amazing views at the top. You can take the train down or just stop at the top and have a coffee or a bite to eat. The loop down gives some nice variety to the trip.
