The walks in this guidebook have been selected from four areas of Snowdonia: Carneddau, Glyders, Snowdon, and the outlying areas of Moelwyns, Eifionydd, Rhinogs, Cader Idris, Arans and Arenigs. Each has its own peculiar charm.

Most first-time visitors congregate around Snowdon. All major paths are well worn and in constant use during weekend and holiday periods. Nevertheless, the scenery around this complex mountain is magnificent. Walks begin by winding pleasantly up valleys or rough grazing land but typically finish on rock ridges poised above cliffs.

The Glyders are the second most popular walking area of Snowdonia. Set among impressive rock scenery, their routes are characteristically short but scrambly. Most of the interest centres on the ridges and rock-walled cwms of their northern side.

The Carneddau occupy a large part of northern Snowdonia. Though lacking the intricacy of the Glyders, they provide magnificent walking over domed summits and barren connecting ridges. As yet only the main ascent routes to Carnedd Llewelyn are heavily used, so there is plenty of opportunity for escape.

Mountains outside the three main areas are lower and generally less rugged. Fences, quarries and pine forests detract from otherwise shapely hills. But there are compensations; apart from a few popular routes most paths are little wider than sheep tracks, while it would be unusual to meet more than a handful of people all day.
