After failing last year to get to the summit we were determined this time! Last year we took the Watkin Path and although the views were breathtaking the path was uneven, steep and exposed at the last stage which, we felt really wasn't suitable for...More

Parked at Pen Y Pass and paid the £10 for the day. Set off up the Pyg track which is hard going! It is very rocky and in places you do have to scramble across rocks with some very steep climbs. It is relentless and...More

It's not peaceful (unless doing it in the later afternoon), it's frequently rammed, mostly cloudy too, but on a clear day.... there's only one word... Breathtaking. My choice of route is... Park at Llanberis, Snowdon Sherpa bus to Pen-y-pass, Pyg track to summit, then Llanberis...More

Wow! So glad we decide to take the trip. As a novice, I had initially decided on the Ranger path as it was supposed to be less busy compared to the Llanberis path. A few days before the trip I decided upon the Watkin path...More

We visited Snowdonia on 15th July. As we were staying there only one night, we decided to hike on the same day. We reached at about 12.30 pm. PEN-Y-PASS car park was full. We had to park two miles away down the hill. We paid...More

Found ourselves back at Snowdon (again) with the kids (14,12,& 9) plus another family including a 2 year old (in a carrier). So to prevent boredom for the kids who have summited Snowdon previously we chose different routes. Visibility was not that great, so we...More

Fantastic views and lovely experience. Make sure you wear proper shoes or boots with thick socks and even if it's sunny at the bottom, make sure you take a coat and gloves because it is a lot colder and windier at the top. Bring plenty...More

Our trip was scheduled for the 14/07/17 and we arrived in the Pen-Y-Pass car park for 6:30am and got a space with ease! We set off up the Pyg track and came back via the miners after a well earned coffee at the top. We...More

Hi your best bet with a 7 year old would be to take the train up and walk down. You would still have to pay for a return ticket. Whatever the weather is doing at the bottom, prepare for the worst at the top, so waterproofs... More

Best of both worlds. You can go up via the Pyg track and back down on the Miners track as it intersects the Pyg track a little way down from the shoulder - there is a pole marking the start of the path down - then it's quite... More
