Snowdonia Way

Conwy, Gwynedd, Powys

151 km / 94 miles
The Snowdonia Way is a long-distance walking trail that takes you the full length of the National Park, from Machynlleth in the South to Conwy in the North, between the two great rivers that mark the southern and eastern edges of the region, the Dyfi and the Conwy. There are two variants, offering a lower and a high-level option - see 'Mountain Route' links below for the hight level option.

The main route is primarily low level, taking valley tracks and hillside paths, encountering old rights of way through forested slopes, and even using Roman roads. There are some steep ascents and descents to encounter, but the route avoids the peaks, meaning it can be walked by those wishing for a journey through the landscape, gazing up at the mountains but enjoying the feeling of being in the valleys.

As the only long-distance low-level route through Snowdonia, the Snowdonia Way is the best way to get to know this part of the world. You'll see the most famous sight, from the great northern cliffs of Cadair Idris to the pass of Aberglaslyn, the Ogwen Valley and Aber Falls.
