Snowdonia enjoyment magazine arrives
Bookmark and Share
Few people who like to go walking, put on their climbing shoes or sit in the saddles of mountain bikes will need any persuading that Snowdonia is a place of enjoyment. With its glorious scenery, challenging terrain and wonderful mountaintop views, its qualities are well known.

But to get a bit extra, visitors might wish to grab a copy of EryriSnowdonia 2012-13, a magazine published by the national park authority. It has just arrived at the authority's information centres, as well as tourist information centres owned by other organisations.

It is designed to enable people to get more out of their trips to the national park, with plenty of advice, suggestions and a list of the 60 best things to see and do.

Some might respond that they know full well what the best parts are, having climbed Snowdon, scrambled up the Bristly Ridge, jumped from Adam to Eve on Tryfan and taken on the 'Welsh Matterhorn' of Cnicht.

But, fine mountains though these are, it may be that some need to cast their horizons a little further.

For example, while some may have done the Snowdon horseshoe, they might have missed some of the massif's outlying peaks, such as Moel Eilio, Moel Cynghorion and Yr Aran, all over 2,000 ft in height.

Similarly, those traversing the Carneddau with its many peaks over 3,000 ft may easily miss the likes of Pen Llithrig Y Wrach or Creigau Gleision.

Further south, walkers can find a wide range of Snowdonia peaks well over 2,000 ft in height that may suffer in the fame stakes against the 3,000-footers at the north end of the national park. 

Of the mountains just shy of 3,000 ft, the 2,930 ft Cadair Idris may be well known, but Aran Fawddwy (2,969 ft) perhaps less so, even though it can be climbed in combination with Glasgwm (2,559 ft) on one excellent day's hike.

So just like the Lake District, it may be that the sort of crowds that clamour for the summits of the handful of mountains that clear the 3,000 ft mark can easily be avoided. Many smaller peaks can be enjoyed and barely a soul spotted all day - a far cry from the trainloads of visitors on Snowdon.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801334416-ADNFCR
