‘There are many awesome walks in Snowdonia National Park. From walks up Snowdon, Glyderau and Carneddau to Rhinogydd and Cader Idris. The peak of Tryfan is as iconic a mountain as you can get, and with summits like Glyder Fawr and the Nantlle Ridge there's something for everyone. Not forgetting Crib Goch and the Snowdon Horseshoe!  There’s also walking for all abilities from low level family walks in Snowdonia such as the walk to Cwm Idwal, moderate walks in Snowdonia, to proper hill walking over mountains and scrambles. There are even a few coastal sections near Abergwyngregyn in the north and along the Meirionnydd coast that’s entirely walk-able along the Wales Coast Path.‘
