Walks in the Heart of Snowdonia

Walks in the Heart of Snowdonia

by: David Berry
This book contains thirty-six walks exploring the beautiful landscape and history of the most popular part of the Snowdonia National Park, with Snowdon at its centre. There are walks by rivers, past valley and upland lakes, through woodland and quarries, and to lesser-known foothills of the high mountain peaks. Whether on waymarked National Trust trails or remote upland paths, the mountain scenery and views are stunning.

The walks range from a 1-mile riverside ramble up to a 9.5-mile challenging exploration of remote upland lakes. Some walks have shorter options and some can be linked to provide longer excursions. Each walk entry begins with a short overview description giving an indication of difficulty and features plus the starting point including grid reference. Detailed route finding instructions follow in numbered paragraphs relating to numbered points on an associated sketch map. There are summary charts giving practical details of the routes.
