Welcome to Walk up Snowdon

Walk up Snowdon is the most comprehensive on-line guidebook for walking routes up Yr Wyddfa, Snowdon, Snowdonia (It’s Never Mount Snowdon). With free walking maps and full guides to all the routes to the summit of Snowdon and is the only website dedicated to Walks up Snowdon and Snowdon alone.

The Routes to the Top page has an interactive map that shows all the walking routes to the summit of Snowdon, and there’s a page for each walk that shows the route and has a downloadable gpx file. The walks up Snowdon are divided into easy walks, hard walks and scrambles up Snowdon. We have a full description for all the popular walks to the summit, from the Llanberis Path to Crib Goch and The Miners’ Tracks. We also describe the less popular, but by no means less scenic routes like Snowdon South Ridge and Y Gribin.

Along with Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis, Snowdon forms part of the National 3 Peaks Challenge as well as the Welsh 3 Peaks and the Welsh 14/15 Peak Challenge.
