Rhyd Ddu

Rhyd Ddu 

The path up Snowdon from the village of Rhyd Ddu (Welsh for black ford) is the quietest of the six main routes to the summit, offering the most striking mountain scenery, especially towards Moel Hebog and the hills of Nantlle.

The first mile climbs gradually along the old track that served the Bwlch Cwm Llan slate quarry, before leaving the track and climbing quite steeply over rocky terrain to Llechog ridge. The path follows the ridge over bare and exposed ground and then along Bwlch Main before the final climb to the summit.

 Rhyd Ddu railway station is one of the stops of the Welsh Highland Railway between Caernarfon and Porthmadog.
