Over the weekend we spent in Snowdonia, one of our main goals was to reach Snowdon, the summit of the Cambrian Mountains. This mountain is the highest point in England and Wales, the higher islands in the British Isles are only in Scotland. There are a number of trails leading to this mountain, and our chosen trail is called the Snowdon Ranger Path, one of the first trails to Snowdon to transport copper from the mines. It is neither a very difficult nor an easy road, but it is a very picturesque area.

When preparing for Snowdonn, the weather conditions should be checked. Snow is present at the top of the snow from November to March or even April. The mountain has quite a status and it often rains here. But later, the road is a little straighter, making the hike easier. There is still a status rocky slope. A track paved with large stones led up in a zigzag. In this place, walking along the cliff, the wind can be very cold, so hoods, hats, and even gloves are very useful.

If the day is not foggy and rainy, the hike becomes much easier. The splitting of the clouds also opens up the beauty of the Cumbrian mountains. Breathtaking views can be seen snow-capped mountain peaks, blue lakes surrounded on all sides by the green Cumbrian mountains. However, it is recommended to enjoy the beautiful views only when you stop to rest. Care must be taken when going uphill as the paved path is slippery. While staring into panoramas you can easily bump over a larger stone and get an injury or trauma, so your hiking might end up earlier.

Some sections of the Snowdon Ranger trail were lighter, some required strength, and in some places, it was necessary to grab the stones by hand. In some difficult parts, you need to rest every couple of hundred meters. Snowdon, located at an altitude of 1085 m, can be reached in about 2 hours and 45 min. The total distance is approximately 3.76 miles, or 6 km.
