This is a beautiful walk that explores the hillside to the south of Llanberis. It starts by following country lanes, gaining some height before joining a footpath which takes you up to an ancient Iron Age fort. The view from the fort is utterly breathtaking, considering you are only 328m above sea level. The path starts to head downhill and follow a bridleway to the south-east, crossing a series of streams to rejoin the road near the first Snowdon Railway Station. The route descends back to Llanberis but goes along a route that takes you through the ruins of the ancient Dolbadarn Castle. The castle started construction in the 1220s with the round tower a later addition, built in the 1230s.
