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.

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.

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

Great trail. Coming down as you do the trail clockwise can be a bit tricky as the trail is quite rundown.

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.

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!

Great views. Fairly challenging in places.

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.

fantastic views all the way round in good weather. I will say that the right hand loop is very steep with lots of loose scree and is a bit hard going on the up but the views are worth it. wild camp on summit overnight sunset was amazing. Emergency shelter is good at summit if needed.

Best scrambling to be had in Wales!

Amazing hike to the summit. Would recommend returning via the miners track for a loop

Good moderate hike with some tough steep climbs

Stunning

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

Hard climb and descent but worth the effort. Incredible place but good weather needed as can be dangerous in poor visibility.

Absolutely brilliant walk! I would recommend this over the Miners Path any day! Hard slog at times but on a clear day the views are amazing from any point of the walk! Beware of the amount of biting midges at the top though!!!

Tricky first ascent, mostly steep stairs. It gets gradual after that then a scramble to the top at the end. Would recommend this over coming up the miners track any day!

I have run from Llanfairfechain to Aber Falls and back and it was one of the best trail runs I’ve done. 10 miles in total, followed by fish and chips in the cafe on the front at Llanfairfechain. Really good day out!!

Lydstep to Saundersfoot (via Penally and Tenby) is a very good, and at times challenging, mountain bike ride. Best to avoid Winter months as certain areas can get overly muddy!

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.

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.

Fab hike on a fine day

(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.
