Coast to Coast - Snowdonia to the Gower

Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Gwynedd, Neath Port Talbot, Powys, Swansea

348 km / 216 miles
The walk climbs to and crosses the peaks of the Carneddau and the Glyders before dropping down through the Llanberis Pass then up and over Snowdon, the Moelwyns, the Rhinogs, Cadair Idris and the Tarrens before descending into the Dyfi valley and Machynlleth. The route, by then becoming more wild and remote, passes Bwlch Hyddgen, Plynlimon, Rheidol, and enters the Elan valley. The Carmarthen Fan and the Black Mountain are crossed, continuing over the Lliw Hills, passing to the west of Swansea, on to the Gower and the coast path.
