The second largest National Park in the British Isles, Snowdonia offers a variety of challenging walks, from the high peaks to lowland valleys and gorges. The guide also includes some walks outside the Park.

•Illustrated with colour maps from leading authority, Harveys, each walk is then described in detail with clear, easy-to-follow instructions.
