Snowdonia (Eryri) is a beautiful area of mountains, rivers, and lakes formed during the Ice Age. At its heart is Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), at 3,560 ft/1085 metres the highest mountain in England and Wales. It is the busiest part of the Snowdonia National Park, but remains a stronghold of Welsh culture and language. The best way to appreciate the area's stunning scenery and fascinating history is to explore on foot the valleys and lesser known foothills of the high mountain peaks. Apart from a popular climb up Snowdon, this book offers lower level walking routes up to 2,500 feet/760 metres for people of all abilities. For the more experienced, there are more demanding lower mountain tops or ridge walks. The 36 walks in this updated second edition range from an easy 1? mile riverside ramble suitable for wheelchairs/pushchairs to a challenging 9? mile exploration of a rugged remote area of upland lakes. They follow public rights of way and permissive paths or cross Open Access land.
