Hard Mountain Walks

Whether you want to ascend one of the six paths up Snowdon or tackle Cader Idris in southern Snowdonia, on a clear day, the panoramic views seen from the summits are unbeatable!

These paths can be very demanding in places. The mountainous terrain can become challenging with steep gradients, rocky paths and some scrambling required. Exceptional care should be taken when attempting these paths in winter conditions as the ground underfoot can become treacherous and should not be attempted by novice walkers. You should look out for loose scree and steep slopes if undertaking these walks. Always remember to wear appropriate clothing and footwear before venturing out into the mountains and check the weather forecast before you set off. Please read our Mountain Safety Advice before venturing out on the mountain
