Llanberis Lake Walk
This circular walk from Llanberis visits Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris from the village. There's some nice lakeside paths leading to the ruins of Dolbadarn Castle, located on the south western side of the lakes.
You can start the walk from the lakeside car park at Llyn Padarn, in the village. From here you can pick up footpaths heading south east to the castle which is located in a fine spot between Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris. The route then heads west to visit the woodland trails in Coed Victoria. You can follow peaceful trails through the woods to the Llanberis Waterfall.
The route then heads north through the town to return to the car park.
To extend the walk you could cross to the other side and explore Padarn Country Park.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas
For wonderful views over the area try the climb to the nearby Moel Eilio. You could also pick up the Snowdon Llanberis Path and head south east towards Llyn Llydaw.
On the fringes of the country park there's the fascinating Dinorwic Quarry to explore.
