Guided mountain hike on Moel Siabod, Snowdonia, North Wales £55pp

This mountain gets it’s ‘Mighty’ tag for being the largest single lump of rock in the National Park. It’s a proper day out!

This day is varied and full of interest, and the finish to the summit is spectacular.

Our route takes you through an ancient forest and past historic quarries, then through a devilishly tricky bit of bog (loads of fun!) to the foot of Daear Ddu ridge. We can stop here for sweeping views of the Moelwynion Range and distant Denbigh moors, before we set off to follow the line of this rocky ridge to the summit.

Where is it? Who is it suitable for? What do I need?

Where?

Moel Siabod is very close to Capel Curig in Conwy, North Wales.

It’s the largest single land mass mountain in the Snowdonia National Park.
A guided hike on Moel Siabod is not to be missed, It’s great for hiking and gives a fantastic round trip as well as the option of scrambling up its Southern rib. For those of us who ski, it gives one of the longest ski descents in the park, right form the summit all the way to the Pen y Gwryd Hotel!

We meet in the Bryn Glo free parking area on the A5 just before Capel Curig.
