Snowden (Yr Wyddfa ) Trek
September 21 - September 22
Join us as we trek to the top of Wales to conquer Mount Snowdon at an elevation of 3,560ft.
Our trail to the summit is the Pyg Track, which starts at the top of Pen y Pass and rises steadily with the imposing Crib Goch directly above. As the path gradually rises we are privy to amazing views down to Glaslyn far below. Our fully supported trek will open up dramatic views as far as Anglesey (on a clear day!) as we approach the summit.
After the obligatory celebration photos at the summit, we start our descent on the Miners Path. Although this is the longest in distance, it is a gradual descent, so easy going underfoot after the strenuous climb up to the summit. We are treated to the most stunning views as we wind our way down to Pen-Y-Pass and back to our campsite to get ready for our celebration meal! A perfect challenge for anyone new to trekking and charity challenge events.
Approximate trekking distances:
Pyg Track 3.4 miles (5.4km)
Miners’ Path 3.8 miles (6.1km)
