This guidebook describes 40 day walks exploring Snowdonia. It showcases some of the best mountain walks in the area, with routes up Snowdon and Tryfan alongside other classic peaks like Y Garn, Cadair Idris and the Glyders. Routes are graded easy to strenuous and include airy and pulse-quickening scrambles such as Crib Goch and Bristly Ridge as well as the Snowdon Horseshoe, the Nantlle Ridge and a 2-day traverse of all 15 of Snowdon's peaks over 3000ft. Walks range in distance from 4 miles (6km) to 16 miles (26km). Clear route descriptions are accompanied by OS mapping, and for each walk there is key information about distance, grade, ascent, terrain, access and parking. With useful advice on where to stay and when to go, and an English-Welsh glossary, this book is an invaluable guide to discovering both the popular and less well-trodden corners of Snowdonia. Snowdonia can justifiably lay claim to some of the finest mountain walking in Britain, from the bristling, jagged ridges of Snowdon to the huge grassy mounds of the Carneddau and the stone-girt fortresses of the Glyderau. These are big mountains with big personalities, with glowering crags and deep rocky cwms. Whether you are based in Bala, Beddgelert, Llanberis, Betws-y-Coed, Dolgellau or Capel Curig, you'll find walks in this guidebook to suit you.

Snowdonia is one of Britain's great mountain regions. Formed by ice and fire, these 'alps' of North Wales soar to a serrated skyline of rocky pyramids and ridges. Climbers have come here since the days of the early pioneers, but this is fine walking country too. John Gillham, who created the critically-acclaimed and comprehensive four-volume Pictorial Guides to the Mountains of Snowdonia for Frances Lincoln, has this time turned his attention to circular walks, suitable for families. Each of the 30 walks in the book has been graded from 1 to 5 for both technical difficulty and strenuousness. None of the walks contains any difficult or exposed scrambling, and the itineraries range from an easy-paced walk on the foothills above Bala to a steep rocky assault on Tryfan. By starting on the easier routes and working up through the grades, the book provides a good introduction for families and newcomers to mountain walking. Equally there are enough splendid outings in high mountain scenery to satisfy the most enthusiastic mountain lover.
