Distance: 6 kilometres (3.5 miles)

Time: Around 3-4 hours

Terrain: Rough and mountainous, some wet and boggy sections

Have you made a New Year resolution to get out and about more in Snowdonia? How about giving this wonderful circular walk to the summit of Crimpiau near Capel Curig y go? You can enjoy magnificent views of the Mymbyr valley and the Snowdon horseshoe beyond, the Ogwen valley and Llyn Crafnant lake.

Although it is a not too challenging mountain route, care should be taken on the higher section, especially if it is frozen underfoot. For more details and directions click on the link below
