Help connect Llanberis

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Llanberis’s Slow Ways.

The incline then increases quite a bit before you reach the top of the pass and as someone who hasn't been very fit before taking this on, this was the section I found the most challenging....But, it was still very achievable by taking small pauses and making the most of the epic views. The last section of the walk was fairly easy walking in terms of both incline and navigation. We had started our day by leaving our car at Beddgelert and taking the bus up to Pen-y-pass and then a second bus down to Llanberis (a very beautiful and easy trip in itself! highly recommended) so we were then able to travel directly home after finishing our hike; however there were a couple of fabulous looking places to eat in Beddgelert had we wanted to end our day with some well deserved treats...

The most direct route between Llanberis & Beddgelert, this Slow Way has incredible scenery, through the foothills of Yr Wyddfa and the Hebog range through Beddgelert forest....

After joining the main road at Waunfawr (all pavement) it's simpler to just carry on until the pavement stops and take the signposted left turn onto the cycle path (rather than cutting the corner on the footpath across the field which has livestock)....

Walk this route

Great walk, especially Beddgelert to Rhyd Ddu which is wheelchair possible with good views of Snowdon. Second part can be wet underfoot and not suitable for wheels. Good low level route round Snowdon....

Narrow sections and styles mean that mobility vehicles would not be able to access many parts of the route....
