Capel Curig would make an ideal location to mount a traverse of the nearby Glyders or Carneddau Range.

Once in Capel Curig, you are greeted by the individual and shapely magnificence of Moel Siabod. The ascent offers one of the finest views in Snowdonia (including a complete panoramic of the Snowdon horseshoe, Tryfan and the Carneddau range). In only four to five hours you will be able to take in a ridge walk, disused quarries, lakeside scenery and a woodland walk.

Once completed, take the opportunity to delight in the events of your day by having refreshments at the Tyn-y-Coed Hotel on the A5 towards Capel Curig.

An interesting walk passing a quarry and lakes with a bit of a climb. The scramble is not technically difficult. Hands are needed  but there is no exposure. If reasonably fit you will find it not too bad. You may blow a bit but just stop and admire the splendid views and then continue. The effort is repaid at the summit with dramatic 360 degree views . The descent is quite long and will probably make your knees ache a bit. The lower stretch through the forest and close to the river provides a very pleasant finale. Decent beer at the pub mentioned in the description. The weather was glorious and my 5 companions were very complimentary re my choice of walk. Highly recommended.  July 2012
