Crib Goch is not for the faint of heart. For most of the trail, one slip would mean serious injury or death. But if you’re up for a real challenge ...

Amazing experience

Beautiful trail. It is perhaps a between easy to moderate trial.

Parked as near as we could to the top so it wasn't too tuff on the kids. Kids found this little route very easy, around 1 hour up with a couple of stops for kids.

We researched many reviews before deciding on taking this one to the summit as we had dogs with us. I would NOT recommend taking dogs up this route as although the initial miners trial from Pen Y Pass is very flat and easy the climb up to the Pyg Track is treacherous, nearly vertical at times, very rocky and difficult on your own let alone with a dog, it actually gets a little easier again on the Pyg Track up to where it then meets the final easy Llanberis pass route to the top . We decided to come back down the Llanberis route which although long is a much easier route for the dogs and certainly young walkers. If on my own I would do the Miners route again but it is certainly not a moderate route in my view.

Nice walk, took us around 3 hours but we were picking berries and stopping to take pictures etc. Probably could complete in 2 if just walking. Had to walk on a road with cars for quite a while and although it was fairly quiet we did have to pull in with the dogs a few times so if you have dogs be mindful of this. Got lost in the wood section of the walk but didn’t take long to find the right path. Some nice views as you get towards the quarry. Little museum at the top as well. The wooded portion of this walk was our favourite as there are old building ruins to look at and lovely waterfall.

Did this with my 15 year old daughter who was new to hiking, very windy, a bit of a scramble at the end. Need decent fitness to get there and back, but really enjoyed. I struggle with heights and at times a little nervous, beautiful views

I never done miners, but PYG going up & Crib Goch down. It was my first time at a grade 1 scramble & what an experience it was, the views were amazing & the ridge was a great challenge. I wouldn't recommend it for the feint hearted but to everyone else, go enjoy yourself & take care.

Me & the better half decided to do this for our first ever hiking trip. We done some research but none of it will prep your muscles & stamina we found you need to reach the summit, but we made it to the top & was well worth it. We didn't find the track overly hard but definitely need to be fit/healthy bodied. 100% would recommend to anyone thinking of giving it a go.

great walk, parking is best at the lake before you turn on the small road up the hill, the climb is kind of steep for an easy walk.

Beautiful hike. Parking was a nightmare, we arrived about 8am and the main one was full, so we parked on the main road at the bottom of the hill just off the side of the road for 4 quid. Then we walked 1 mile up to the start of pyg trail where we went up to the peak then down the miners. Having just come from a month hiking in USA, where most hikes were empty , this hike in Snowdon was just far too populated , there were so many people it wasn't even funny. I wish had of come earlier in the year , the train to the top doesn't help as it dumps like 60 people at the top each time it comes up.

great walk, but you need to be careful after the mines as the path is not clear and I ended up in the fenced fields and had to carry my dog over it.

Unfortunately a lot of paved road, but still a nice round. The trail specified in Alltrails does not always match the white mark, but it is always about short sections. Very nice views on the way.
