Best Hill Walks to Indulge in Snowdonia and North Wales

If you have a passion for hill-walks; then there is no better place than Snowdonia. Most Caernarfon and Snowdonia hotels would often be jam-packed with tourists passionate about hill-walking. We list out a few favorite trails that are a must-try for the enthusiasts.

  • The Rhinogydd

These mountains are rough and are meant for the experienced and daring walkers. The hike is slow here especially in the section of Basdlands around Craig Wion. You have the flexibility to choose a shorter section of the range, but the best thrill and excitement comes from the traverse of the entire range from Trawfynydd to Barmouth. It cannot be covered in one day but takes about a two- or three-days backpack. You can enjoy the added thrill of camping on this hill-walk.

  • Moel Hebog

This mountain of Beddgelert is quite popular and offers plenty of hill-walks. Its route looks easy but is quite hard to trail. For the best experience; you can extend your walk over Moel yrOgof and Moel Lefn and have one of the best enjoyable circular walks.

·         Arenig Fawr and Moel Llyfnant Circular Walk

This trail is not known to many as it is in the less popular part of the national park. Thus, it is an ideal trail for those who crave more for some quietness. It is surrounded predominantly by lower grounds, and thus, you get the widest views of Snowdonia from Arenig Fawr. To have an ideal circular walk; you can add on Moel Llyfnant to it.

  • Cnicht and Moelwynion from Croesor

The Welsh Matterhorn or Cnicht is definitely one of the best mountains in Snowdonia due to its appearance from certain angles, but it offers a short walking trail on its own. The walk becomes more enjoyable if it is combined with the mountains of Moelwyn Bach and Mawr, the highest point in the Moelwyn hills apart from Moel Siabod.
