For the people who don’t want to or can’t hike up to the top, a moderately challenging climb up to the second lake of Glaslyn will give you beautiful views after which you could choose to return.

You can take the easy road by simply circling the lake at lake level (very easy road) or you can climb up towards devils kitchen and make a slightly larger circle (this hike). There are some places you need to use your hands to scramble over some rocks (north-west part of the walk) but the view up there is beautiful and if you take your time it is doable for most people and you’ll still feel nicely challenged on the hike. Would rate it easy to moderate, but only moderate for a very small part.

Stunning landscape!

Terrific walk

We did Miners Pass both up and down as we completed in July when the weather was hot and some members of our party wanted to swim in the lakes on the way back down! We are CrossFitters so all of good fitness levels and found the path relatively straight forward, bit of a scramble where the Miners and PYG track meet but not too bad if you take your time.

This was my 1st time hiking a mountain and felt confident doing it, plenty of people doing it so no danger of getting lost!

Enjoyed this walk today with my family and dog.
Pouring with rain but still scenic and photogenic.
Saw a family with a pushchair - gives you an idea of the suitability of this walk. Mainly uphill out and of of course downhill on the return.
Car park at the bottom is £2 for the day. (Aug 18)

Lovely walk with stunning water falls at the end

Family friendly. Kids enjoyed it.

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

Stunning views

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!!

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.

Family friendly hike to falls which are quite unexpectedly beautiful. Yet to try extensions including loop to Llanfairfechan. Also hear the flapjack from cafe in Aber is to die for.

We did this in a large group of mixed abilities and it was great fun. We took the Llanderis path and caught some lovely views in between the clouds! Towards the summit it did get tough due to the weather and the incline but worth it!
