National Parks Week has begun today (July 25th), with a range of events that may prompt people to put on their walking trousers or jump onto the saddle of a mountain bike.

Events include a Snowdonia hike below Snowdon from Pen-Y-Pas to Llyn Llydaw, a lake crossed by a small causeway by those seeking to reach the highest point in Wales via the Pyg Track or Miner's Path, for which walking boots have been described as essential.

This takes place on July 27th and is one of several activities for which hiking boost and waterproofs are on the "must bring" list.

Another is a guided walk around Grinton in the Yorkshire Dales on July 26th, which explores local mineworkings, as well as walks planned in Devon by the Exmoor and Dartmoor National Park authorities.

The Peak District became Britain's first national park 60 years ago, while the most recent addition was the South Downs last year.
