The  Rhyd Ddu and Rangers Path is a more remote and therefore quieter ascent of the Snowdon, offering the most striking mountain scenery, especially towards Moel Hebog and the hills of Nantlle.

The  Rhyd Ddu and Rangers Path starts in the lowlands at the very small village of Rhyd Ddu and we make our way up , looking back to see the dramatic deep bowl of Cwm Clogwyn and on a clear day you can see as far as the Irish Wicklow mountains.

With varied terrain, including a little easy scrambling and exposed ridges, to make things interesting, it’s certainly not for anyone who doesn’t have a head for heights!

As you near the summit, take in Anglesey, the Menai Strait, Cardigan Bay and the English plains.

On the way down we take the easier, less dramatic Ranger Path, eventually leaving us with a short cross-country hike back to the Rhyd Ddu carpark to complete an unforgettable mountain experience!
