Approaching Mynydd Drws-y-Coed, 3 kbSnowdonia’s biggies are crammed into a small corner of the National Park, along with most of the crowds. In contrast the adjacent Nantlle hills feel like a neglected backwater - in a good way. A grassy stride along elegant curved arêtes, the traverse of the main ridge linking all the summits in the range is a classic Welsh walk, with a rare sense of peace and spacious seaward views. Mildly scrambly moments are spread out along the way, and they're unlikely to tax even the most nervous hillwalker. This Route Card accompanies a UKH article: http://www.ukhillwalking.com/articles/page.php?id=4634

8.62 miles, 13.88 km, 1,300m ascent, 6 – 7 hours. Beddgelert

In reply to Dan Bailey - UKHillwalking.com: Good route.. Just doing start > 6 then 3 then 2 and back is a great little loop if short of time.. its one of my favourite runs.. think its about an hours run.. for some reason the ridge is awful in the wet though.. slippy as hell. Its scramble in places but I take the dog along without much of an issue..

A local taxi service now does a return service if you want to do the full ridge and descend down to one of the villages out W...
In reply to IainRUK: Cheers Iain. A whole hour? You obviously need to work on that.
