Snowdon Summit via the Miners' and Pyg Tracks Walk


From the top of the pass, take the path through a gate at the back of the car park towards the left. A well-made track leads past Llyn Teyrn and the causeway over Llyn Llydaw.

The track now steepens towards Glaslyn and ends near the remains of the miners' barracks. A steep ascent brings you to a junction with the Pyg Track with its famous zigzags leading to the ridge below the summit. The railway line is followed to the cafe with the trig point above it.

To return, follow your outward route to the Pyg Track and walk along it high above the lakes instead of dropping down to them.  An improving track leads back to Pen-y-Pass.
