we climbed on the 17/5/19 up the miners track the fog came down on us at the top lake it's easy to get disorientated at this point you want to take the steps opposite the middle of the lake, don't go to the end of the path and attempt the scree scramble like we did....... it was a really hard climb, at the top of this path you meet the pyg track and then climb steep steps and rocks to the next junction with the llanberis path then it's a short climb to the summit, the fog had lifted by the time we hit the summit and we were treated to the amazing views. we then descended via the pyg track back to pen y pass. it took us 4 hours up and 2.5 hours down. well worth the climb.

TAKE THE PYG PATH UP, Miner trail back. It’s the best way! Parking can be a nightmare! We had to park 3 miles away from the trail head. YOU NEED TO PAY FOR PARKING ON SIDE OF ROAD. IF YOUR TIRES TOUCH THE ROAD YOU’LL GET A PARKING TICKET! We luckily moved our car in order to avoid this. The hike itself is super challenging. It’s rewarding I’d say. If you’re gonna go up there, make it to the TOP! No matter what, take a break, keep going, repeat. You’ll be happy you did. Even on a cloudy day like we had.

I've been up the Pyg and down the m Miners and vice versa. I think it was harder to go up the Miners and down the Pyg, but more enjoyable up the Pyg. if the car park is full drive down the hill and park to right. after the sign you don't have to pay. take the left at the junction and you do and the traffic wardens will be about!

1st mountain hike and had loads of fun. Added extra km because had to park further away but it was worth it. Gorgeous views and some fun scrambling though have to admit that the last hour was painful. Am extremely sore now but happy :)

We actually started from our cottage in Dolwyddelan so added a little on to the route but it was a nice route and the paths were easy to find. Dog loved it too...first mountain!

I'd recommend this trail for people who are usually up to physical activities and are in a good shape as there are some pretty steep and hardcore spots. However, the view from the top totally pays off

fantastic walk, We had to park about 2 miles away from the car park so it was a lot longer than usual. And make sure you get a parking ticket you will still get booked if you are parked on the grass!
