Must walk such a lovely place

The Daear Ddu route is my preferred route, because it’s more challenging in terms of a steeper ascent than if you were to start at Plas y Brenin. You can do the hard part first and enjoy a leisurely descent. It’s also more enjoyable because of varied scenery. I enjoyed a picnic at the top on a clear day and the views are excellent. Lakes, woodland, mountains: perfect.

Enjoyable trail. I found it fairly easy in terms of a quick ascent, with one steeper but short section reaching the peak. Pleasant views, and a very quiet and peaceful area. There’s a bench by the llyn/lake to watch the geese on the lake.

Beautiful place, amazing circuit easy to follow hard to get lost!

We followed the start of this route and wandered off on our own little adventure to the peak. Please be aware that the second half of our walk is pretty strenuous and not to be taken lightly. The paths are not easy to find but the views are worth it.

Lovely place to walk

Really lovely hike on a defined path up, very easy to navigate. Gets the heart going with a stead but constant incline

We took the PYG trail up to the summit and then came down along the Miners Track. This way was really nice as the Miners track is relatively flat most of the way but then is very steep and scrambly up to the summit. So coming back down the miners is much easier than going up it. The PYG track is challenging in some places with climbing across rocks and some icy steps. Please make sure you have suitable footwear! At the summit the wind was unbelievable, if you faced it for too long you couldn’t breathe properly and it would also blow you over! Many people lost hats and gloves here. Beautiful walk but don’t underestimate it.

Paths are nice and easier. Not to steep, not all paths are marked.

More HARD than moderate! But Beautiful, buttt no clear trail (used the app the whole time) and nearly timed it wrong on the way back it was taking a while to get back down as we went down a different path by accident. Wasn’t easy figuring out the route beware! Possibly took us around 4/5 ish hours (had a big group and some slow walkers) . My favourite hike in North Wales.

Great walk but very long and challenging in bad conditions.

Amazing trail with great views on a clear day.

Great walk, its not all that challenging but is full of beauty sights. Really safe for dogs too, with the only precarious part being the walk along the river if the water is flowing rough.
