Northern Carneddau

This was an absolutely perfect walking day, clear and sunny throughout with hardly a breath of wind, enough frost still in the ground that you could skip across the top of the boggy areas but balmy enough for shirt sleeves on the lower slopes. There isn't an awful lot to say about this walk - it's a...

Arenig Fach & Carnedd y Filiast

Perhaps when almost everything you read says that a route is boggy, riddled with heather, tough and mainly pathless, you should draw the obvious conclusion from this? But somehow optimism always takes over and you think that it can't be quite that bad... maybe this one was. our_route.gpx The way up ...

Thanks, everyone!
Mynydd Mawr was a lovely short walk; highly recommended if you haven't been there.

Mynydds Mawr & Graig Goch

All the forecasts were for a pretty mixed day, so it looked like a good one to get back onto the hills with a short and easily-navigable climb.

Re: A circuit of Snowdon's western foothills

Thanks!, 'yorkie'. Well, I'm quite glad that all that work on the Maesgwm path hasn't been wasted. I can see that it would have been an important pass through the higher peaks before motor transport, but quite hard to see where it obviously leads now - I walked it once 20-odd years ago, between the ...

A circuit of Snowdon's western foothills

our_route.gpx A first walk of the New Year on a very frosty day to keep us amateurs well away from the higher mountains... This was a straightforward and easily-navigated route on clear paths throughout, but even here - on the lower slopes - in sheltered spots the surface snow had frozen solid to m...
