Leisurely Walks

What’s great about these leisure walks is that they are all on the flat and cover easy ground with little or no gradient. You can either walk part of the route or complete the whole trail–it’s entirely up to you. With the exception of the Mawddach Trail, all these easy leisure walks can be completed within a few hours leaving you free to explore the Snowdonia National Park at your leisure. Comfortable waking shoes are recommended.
