This posting, as promised, summarises our walks last week from Porthmadog, and finishes with a link to a fairly lengthy annotated slideshow.
We started with this 8.5 km circuit from Tomen-y-mur.
Then we walked in the Trawsfynydd area (pictured above), before strolling around Llyn Bach – 2 km, as shown below.
We walked in a circuit from Llanbedrog – 4 km, 150 m ascent, 1.25 hours.
In the morning we enjoyed a damp circuit from Criccieth – 11 km, 150 m ascent, 2.75 hours.
In the afternoon we enjoyed a walk over Foel Gron, Foel Fawr and Carneddol – 8.5 km, 200 m ascent, 2 hours.
A walk around the coast path from Abersoch to Porth Ceiriad and back – 10.5 km, 200 m ascent, 3 hours.
Later, this 6.5 km circuit with 200 m ascent, taking1.5 hours.
A classic short traverse of Cnicht – 11 km, 600 m ascent, taking 4 hours.
Classic ascent of Moel-y-gest from Porthmadog – 7 km, 300 m ascent, 2.25 hours.
And a visit to Great Orme on the way home.
Here’s an overview of the week’s walks. Porthmadog is an excellent base from which to explore Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula, which is often bathed in sunshine whilst cloud lingers over Snowdonia.
