About this book

This guide offers 40 memorable excursions among the valleys and heights of Snowdonia. These mainly circular routes have been chosen to encourage independent exploration of the National Park, while offering the safe hand of guidance for those who prefer their walking days to be tailor-made. The walks are all graded, making the guide equally suitable for less experienced walkers looking for adventure, new discoveries and the joy of exploration.
