Many of our moderate walks are circular and vary from a few hours’ walking to an all day outing. They are a great opportunity to see the Snowdonia National Park without having to compete with undulating terrain or venture onto our more challenging paths. Although our leisure walks are less demanding, the terrain can vary according to location. When starting out on one of these walks, be prepared for farmland, rough footpaths, tarmac roads, streams, marshes and some steep sections. These walks are great for the whole family. A good pair of walking boots and suitable clothing is recommended.
Cwm Idwal, Ogwen - Moderate Walk
We have closed the busiest mountains in Snowdonia, and there will be no access to all members of the public in these areas until further notice. We have worked hard to try and maintain a balance between closures of the honey pot sites to deter visitors and ensuring that local people are still able to exercise from their doorstep whilst government guidelines allow for this. This includes Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Cader Idris, 'Ogwen' - Y Garn, Glyderau, Tryfan and Cwm Idwal, Aran Benllyn and Aran Fawddwy.

Panorama Walk, Barmouth - Moderate Walk
On this varied and beautiful walk you can enjoy some of the most spectacular views in Snowdonia! Visitors have been walking parts of this walk since the Victorian period enjoying the splendid views of the Mawddach estuary, of the Cader Idris range and of the Cardigan Bay.

Dôl-goch, Tywyn - Moderate Walk
There is an interesting and varied woodland in the humid gorge facing north-west. The wood has seen little grazing over the years and there is therefore an unusually luxuriant variety of plants to be seen here including honeysuckle, ivy and several fern species.

Bwlch Drws Ardudwy - Moderate Walk
The longer of two walks in the area, this circular route (a moderate graded walk) will lead you towards Bwlch Drws Ardudwy, which is the gap between Rhinog Fawr and Rhinog Fach. This walk gives you the opportunity to experience the rugged Rhinogydd National Nature Reserve, before leading you back to the Graigddu woodland. Many say that the Rhinogydd is one of the last true wilderness in Wales, and once you’re there it’s easy to see why.
