Meet 9.20 for a 9.30 departure at Porth Penrhyn in Bangor.

To get to Porth Penrhyn, come off A55 at junction 11, take A5 towards Bangor, enter the 30mph area, and Porth Penrhyn is a turning on the right. It is poorly signed, but there is a large sign for a new housing development, (Plas Y Coed).  After the turning, continue over the stone bridge and park soon after that.

Post code is LL57 4HN, grid reference is SH593724. (if you bear left down to the quay you go through a barrier which is locked in the evening).

The walk is along pleasant footpaths and country roads, farm land to Bethesda, after Bethesda we cross moorland to descend to Llanberis.

The walk is 22 Kms (14 miles) with an ascent of 700 metres, it should take about 7 hours of walking time. Return from Llanberis by bus to Bangor.
