The Eifionydd hills are the quieter end of Snowdonia.  There are only three main hills/ridges which are the Nantlle Ridge, Moel Hebog and Mynydd Mawr. It’s rather difficult to get them all in one walk, but easily done in two and a half days.

The Nantlle Ridge is undoubtedly one of the classic ridge walking routes in Snowdonia. While many will do this with two cars, or even the ‘double’, the more elegant and pleasing option is to return via Cwm Pennant. It boasts a string of summits along it’s length, with Y Garn, Mynydd Drws y Coed, Trum y Ddysgl, Tal y Mignedd, Craig Cwm Silyn, Garnedd Goch and Mynydd Graig Goch all found along its length.

Mynydd Mawr is an outlier, worthy of a half day outing from Rhyd Ddu. However, it hides a secret side from the Fron side that may be worth the detour.

Moel Hebog towers over Beddgelert and, along with Moel yr Ogof and Moel Lefn makes an excellent hill walk.
