Moel Siabod

5 miles (8 km)

Climb to the summit of Moel Siabod on this challenging walk in Snowdonia. The mountain reaches a peak of 872m making it the highest peak in theMoelwynionmountain range. The views from the summit are particularly special. On a clear day the you can see Snowdonia, Glyderrau and the Carneddau ranges.
The start point at the village of Pont Cyfyng is delightful, with views of the Afon (river) Llugwy and the Llugwy waterfalls. You then ascend to the summit passing a small lake, a quarry and the lovely Llyn-y-Foel on the way. There's also the spectacular Deaer Ddu south east ridge which requires some scrambling before you reach the summit.
This is a challenging walk with some scrambling required. You are rewarded with wonderful views throughout.
If you would like to continue your walking in the area then the walk to Llyn Cowlyd starts from the nearby Capel Curig car park.
