The route – Snowdon via Lliwedd and return via the Pyg Track
We'll be starting and finishing this epic mountain trek at Pen Y Pass and using the Miner’s track to get us under way. We’ll then pass the beautiful waters of Llyn Llydaw where the steepness and interest grows. There will be sections that are loose under foot plus some easy but non-technical scrambling which will lead to really pleasant walking. Soon will be at the twin summits of Lliwedd from which the views in every direction are simply breath taking. From Llewidd we’ll make our way to the summit of Snowdon via the challenging but enjoyable path. The summit of Snowdon is simply epic and if time permits, we can pop into the café for a hot drink and soak up the atmosphere. From the summit we’ll make out way in the direction of Llanberis and soon turn off towards the Pyg Track. It’s from here that you’ll get some amazing views of Snowdon and the sheerness of the Trinity Face which lis below it. The route winds its way back down to the lake and then back to Pen Y Pass completing a spectacular adventure.
