Welsh Rhino

31 km / 19 miles

Gwynedd
The Welsh Rhino is a challenge walk that traverses the southern part of the remote and rugged Rhinogyd range in Snowdonia, North Wales, taking in the peaks of Diffwys, Y Llethyr, Rhinog Fach and Rhinog Fawr, to descend westwards towards the coast. The starting point for the walk is Barmouth station and it ends at The Victoria Inn, Llanbedr.

On successful completion of the walk within 12 hours, meeting certain restrictions on routing and other items, certificates and badges are available.

Although under 20 miles, this walk can be a strenuous undertaking, the terrain is rugged and the ascents and descents of each mountain require care and mountain experience on untracked, rough and rocky ground, as well as good navigation skills, especially in adverse weather conditions. There are no forms of shelter or sources of refreshment on the walk. Mobile phone connection is intermittent.

Information is on the website below and track files may be downloaded below.
