If you are new to walking in the mountains the one thing to remember is that the weather can change within five minutes. This was certainly the case the day we spent on Snowdon. At the foot of the mountain scorchingly hot, whilst at the...More

I last climbed Snowdon 38 years ago so it seemed like a good time to give it another try. Not sure what paths I tried back then, but I can see the conservationers have been at work, and the paths are much safer and easier...More

We loved our walk up to the summit. The weather was amazing and although there were lots of other walkers everyone was great. It was busy but that didn't spoil the unbelievable views for us. So pleased we drove the 200 miles to get there.

Often gets a bad rep due to how busy it is, but if you can ignore the hoards it's a beautiful mountain and I can see why so many people want to visit

If you really must take your dog then definitely choose the Llanberis path. Wouldn’t advise the Pyg or Miners track as a lot of steps that are quite high and staffy’s are short legged dogs. Keep on a lead as near the top... More

No signposts at all, we just looked from the top and kind of went with it.. we ended up off the track a bit but not too bad. Follow the crowd
