  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
Car Parking near Snowdon is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

It is possible to climb Snowdon from Betws-y-Coed or Capel Curig
every day throughout the year
(by Sherpa to the start of most of the tracks)

(any summer weekend)
If you plan to go up and/or down the Llanberis, Watkin, Rhyd Ddu or Snowdon Ranger paths
then ask the driver of your first bus for a 6.80 Red Rover Day ticket

Why not go up one track and return down another ?

Remember - if the weather is bad or you find the going is too hard - turn back
