Mynydd Mawr Walk - 1 September 2019

Mynydd Mawr Walk
Keith Ellis

Grade: Moderate

Distance: Around 6 miles

Time: Around 3-4 hours

Terrain: Forest track, grass and along a steep ridge.

This walk offers wonderful views, and if you’re lucky you’ll have the entire mountain to yourself!

The local name on the mountain is Mynydd Eliffant (elephant mountain) as its profile from the Caernarfon direction resembles an elephant’s back.
