The first 2 miles or so will be a gentle climb uphill to around 400m, after that it's downhill, on good paths towards Beddgelert. The total distance is around 8 miles.

Beddgelert, or Gelert's Grave, is a pretty little village deep in the shadow on Snowdon itself.

This 8 mile walk will start at Rhyd-Ddu, to the north of Beddgelert Forest and will climb up to round 400m going around Y Gyrn before cutting back down into the Forest again and roughly following the Welsh Highland Railway onwards to Beddgelert itself.

At the village there will be time for a wander around the place, see Gelert's Grave and learn all about the legend of Prince Llewelyn and his faithful hound. I can also very much recommend the Ice Cream Parlour in the village!

We'll catch the steam train (the Welsh Highland Railway) back from Beddgelert to Rhyd-Ddu before returning to camp - please make sure you've got cash for the train fare (and probably for an Ice Cream as well...).
