A guide to 40 great mountain day hikes and scrambles in Snowdonia, Wales, UK. These inspirational new routes along the valleys and along the tops range right across the National Park and are divided into 8 geographical regions: Snowdon and Moel Eilio, the Glyderau, the Carneddau, Eifionydd, Siabod and the Moelwynion, Rhinogydd (the Harlech Dome), Migneint and the Arans and Cadair Idris and the Tarrens. All routes are graded, from moderate to strenuous, and illustrated with Harvey map extracts, topo diagrams by Mark Richards and lots of stunning photographs. Inviting the reader to experience less well-known regions as much as those that are eternally popular, these mainly circular day walks have been chosen to encourage independent exploration of the National Park, while offering clear guidance for those who prefer their walking days to be tailor-made. The author's deep knowledge of and passion for this much-loved region shines through.Some routes include mild scrambling or long days in rugged country, and many can be enjoyed all year round.
