Snowdonia Way Mountain Route

188 km / 117 miles

Conwy, Gwynedd, Powys
The Snowdonia Way is a long-distance walking trail over 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. The main route is primarily low level, while this is the mountain option.

For those who want to climb some mountains on the way, a high level route has been devised. This route intersects with the standard route regularly, so you can switch between them when you feel like it or when the weather dictates, or you can walk the whole high-level route from beginning to end, 122 miles between Machynlleth and Conwy. This route gives you a spectacular journey over Snowdonia's mountains, climbing the most famous peaks such as Snowdon, Cadair Idris, Cnicht and the Glyders, also taking you to some of the peaks less visited, which you may have all to yourself.
