Min. 6hrs walk. Approx 17km & c.1,050m ascent

The Moel Eilio Horseshoe (with Foel Gron & Foel Goch) is just North-West of the main Snowdon range, but topping out at 726m it has a (slightly - fingers crossed) better chance of not being shrouded in cloud than it's more notorious neighbours and on a clear day provides a fantastic panorama of the Snowdon range, the Nantile ridge and the North-Western coastline of Wales and Anglesy beyond. 

Starting from Llanberis, the walk climbs steeply up the shoulder of Moel Eilio (726m) - the highest peak, to then follows the broad undulating ridge, ticking off Foel Gron (591m) and Foel Goch (605m)  before dropping to the Bwlch (col) of Maesgwm to follow a good path back to Llanberis, but with the option (depending on time, weather and inclination!) of adding in the far summit of Moel Cynghorion (674m) (out & back), making it roughly 17km and with around 1,050m of overall ascent!
