Hostel weekend with a mountain walk and optional cycle

A hostel weekend based at the foot of Cadair Idris, a popular mountain in the south of Snowdonia National Park near Dolgellau.  The location is ideally suited for mountain biking, road cycling, fell running and walking.

Cader Idris means 'Idris's Chair'. Idris is usually taken to be the name of a giant or, alternatively, it may refer to Idris ap Gwyddno, a 7th-century prince of Meirionnydd who won a battle against the Irish on the mountain.

Initial activity plans include a walking option on the Saturday up Cadair Idris if the weather is favourable.  If the weather decides not to be nice, there will be a lowland walk towards Fairbourne, maybe with the inclusion of a steam train and cake.

On the Sunday, rather than head home straight away, there will likely to be a short cycle and/or walk over the famous Barmouth Viaduct for a pub lunch.  Barmouth Viaduct is a Grade II listed single-track wooden railway viaduct across the estuary of the Afon Mawddach. It is 820 metres long and carries the Cambrian Line. It is the longest timber viaduct in Wales and one of the oldest in regular use in Britain, opened in 1867
