Cadair Idris

5 miles (8 km)

The climb to the 893m (2,930ft) summit of Cadair Idris is one of the most popular walks in the Snowdonia National Park. This route follows the Minffordd Path and begins near the car park at Minffordd and the glacialTal-y-llyn Lake. You begin with a lovely woodland section before ascending towards the stunning Llyn Cau. This beautiful lake is surrounded by huge cliffs and is a breathtaking sight, particularly when viewed from above. You continue around the lake towards Penygadair- the highest point on the mountain. From here there are magnificent views of the Barmouth estuary, the Cambrian Mountains,the Brecon Beacons, the Rhinogs and the rest of Snowdonia National Park. You continue east to Mynydd Moel and descend towards Moelfryn, crossing the Nant Cadairbefore returning to the car park through the woodland.
