The Mountain Walker's Guide to Wales

The Mountain Walker's Guide to Wales

by: Colin Adams
This comprehensive guide describes 100 routes of varying lengths and difficulty, from gentle strolls to tough excursions and therefore contains something suitable for every category of walker. It includes virtually every mountain summit in Wales, many of which are represented in a guide for the first time. It includes practical advice about safety and equipment and provides fascinating geological, historical and general interest facts. Each of the routes guarantees at least one summit and is designed so that it requires the use of only one OS Explorer map sheet. All the routes start and finish at the same point with safe car parking in mind.
The guide has divided the walks into 20 mountain groups starting in the north west corner of the principality and finishing in the south east. They are as follows: Llyn - an ancient Celtic stronghold; Eifionydd - intriguing hills where history and legend blend; Snowdon - the pride of Wales and the land of King Arthur; Glyder - a textbook example of a landscape created by glaciers; Carneddau - Contains the largest area of land above 1000m in the British Isles outside Scotland; Clwydian - modest hills, witness to a turbulent past; Moelwyni - the industrial dereliction is now a part of the heritage of Gwynedd; Rhinog - provides some of the most rugged and demanding walking in Britain; Arennig - lonely peaks rise above abandoned valleys; Berwyn - possesses its own brand of beauty; Aran - a fascinating place, but access is restricted; Cadair Idris - savage country; Dyfi Forest - an area of unbroken solitude, vast skies and broad expanses; Pumlumon - high windswept moorland, solemn and mysterious; Cwmdeuddwr - Wales' great wilderness; Radnor Forest - a jewel in the British countryside; Carmarthen Fan - a fastness to be reckoned with; Fforest Fawr - a medieval hunting ground; Brecon Beacons - South Wales' principal mountain group; Black Mountains - superb ridge walking country.
