Make the most of Snowdon's trails for stunning scenery

Snowdonia's peaks

Are you tackling Wales's highest maintain this summer? Apparently Snowdon has been voted the best in the UK for its stunning views and ten million people make the ascent every year.

However, we are creatures of habit and many hikers and scramblers take the same route up every time – despite the fact there are seven to choose from, each offering cracking scenery and different adventures.

Highlighting this, holiday park operator Darwin Escapes has put together this handy guide to make the most of your British holiday. Will you join the crowds on the Llanberis Path (nine miles there and back, 40 per cent difficulty) or tackle the lonely Crib Goch from Pen-Y-Pass route (difficulty rating: ten out of ten but only 7.5 miles)?

"Many people are unaware of the different routes to the top of the mountain; visiting Snowdon on varying occasions but ultimately sticking to the same path," says Samantha Lambert, Marketing Manager of Darwin Escapes.

"This means that they miss out on some stunning scenery and adventure in the process, which is why we have put together this essential Snowdon guide which is a must have resource for anyone planning to scale the mountain."

Of course, you could just take the Snowdonia Mountain Railway Line up the 1,085m (3,560 feet) mountain, search for the extremely rare Snowdon Lily or take the longest zip line in the world.
