The Snowdonia Crossing Day 2: 

Beddgelert over Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) to Pen-y-Pass

After a huge breakfast we continue our Snowdon Coast to Coast Challenge, leaving the village of Beddgelert, our route continues following the Glaslyn River to Llyn Dinas, a stunning lake on the lower slopes of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) in the Nant Gwynant Valley.  

Here your trail leaves the valley floor as you start your ascent of Yr Wyddfa, the highest peak in Wales via the Watkin Path. An original path to the summit, the Watkin Path has the most height gain with starting near sea level. The route leads through a beautiful ancient native oak woodland, slowly climbing into Cwn Llan with it’s stunning waterfalls.  

The Watkin Path involves 1000m of ascent over a distance of 6.5km the last part of the climb to the summit involves a short scramble section. 

On reaching the summit of Yr Wyddfa you’ll have time to relax and enjoy the panoramic mountain views over the Snowdonia National Park before descending via the Pyg Track. This track is a shorter descent of 5.5kms and the rocky path will lead you to Pen Y Pass where you will overnight.
