I put together this video walk report of my experience hiking from Aberglaslyn, through the stunning gorge, Beddgelert (apologies for the mispronunciation of this in the video!) Llyn Dinas and a descent through Cwm Bychan - complete with its old ropeway. Whilst it was an easy 5.7 mile circular walk incomparison to many others in Snowdonia National Park, it was one of my favourites and incredibly varied too! If you choose to watch it, I hope you enjoy it. :)

Nice. Think it's time to invest in some walking poles though :wink:

Do you say that because of my comment about my knees?

I think you might be right too!

Hiking poles can help your knees but also help with confidence on descending scrambly sections and crossing streams. I've become so used to seeing people using poles, it looks seriously strange to see you both walking with your arms hanging limp by your sides. Give them a go!
