Those who like to put on their walking boots
before setting off up a mountain may find their day spoiled somewhat if they encounter a lot of litter, but those climbing Snowdon next month may find the mountain to be very clean.
Volunteers from the Snowdonia Society will be helping to carry out a mass litter pick on two of the popular paths up the mountain on October 7th, the Miners Track and the Llanberis Path.
The Miners Track passed Llyn Lydaw Reservoir as it approaches the peak from the east, while the Llanberis Path comes up from the west alongside the Mountain Railway, which will be used to ferry volunteers up the mountain before they start their task.
Volunteers are advised to bring waterproofs
and walking boots
Another litter pick by the society will take place on October 30th between Waunfawr and Llanberis, with the Snowdonia Marathon having passed through the previous day.
The race is being run for the 29th time this year and was voted the best marathon in Britain by readers of Runners World magazine in 2007.
