Route Information

Distance: 8 miles

Time: 5-6 hours

Grade: Arduous

Here are some photos of an early morning walk my HuDad and I did following the Watkin path up to the summit of Snowdon.  HuDad parked up at the car park of Pont Bethania and we followed the road to the signed Watkin Path. We set off in the dark, so I had my special collar with the light on and HuDad had his head torch on to guide our way. We witnessed the most spectacular sunrise, if only we had set off earlier to witness it at the top!
