Further Information and Other Local Ideas

The longer Llanberis Lake Walk starts from the lakeside car park and visits the falls. It also visits the Coed Victoria Woods and the photogenic Dolbadarn Castle which dates from the early 13th century.
On the fringes of the country park there's the fascinating Dinorwic Quarry to explore. At one time the quarry was the second largest slate quarry in the world. You can pick up the tramway trail footpath across the site just north of the visitor centre. The quarry is one of the significant sites on the Snowdonia Slate Trail which runs through the area. The circular long distance trail can be used to visit several of the other historic mining areas located in the World Heritage Site. Heading north along the trail would take you to Bethesda where you could visit the Penrhyn Quarry which was the largest slate quarry in the world during the 19th century. Heading south along the trail would take you to Dorothea Quarry where you'll find the remains of the old mining houses and a series of scenic lakes including Llyn Nantlle Uchaf.
