A hand picked selection of our favourite Trail Routes for walking, running & scrambling in Snowdonia National Park & across North Wales.

Each post contains photos, 3D map views, detailed location information, links to OS Maps & in most cases video footage. We’ve included favourites such as Tryfan & Snowdon, but much of our focus is on the lesser visited mountains of North Wales such as Allt Fawr & Arenig.

This collection is primarily a record of places we’ve visited often & know the trail routes extremely well. Secondly it’s an open resource of information for people wanting to enjoy walking, running & exploring the forests, mountains & lakes in North Wales. We update each location on every revisit with new photos, trail routes and videos.
